I came home this morning from work and I noticed my platty had fry. She still has the dark spot and im wondering if she's still pregnant or just looks like it. And she had hem in the community tank. I am short on money so I didn't have a breeder tank so I shoved two artificial plants on each side of this artificial log. And another one in this little cave I have. They are hiding in them so they are ok fo now. Will that even work? I did see a fry swim to the surface and got eaten. Will this eventually happen to all of them? How long does it take for them to grow?
