    My platy just had babies again! Ours are orange(mickey mouse) ones, and the only way we were able to tell was that she had a dark spot on her belly. Its hard to describe(as im still learning terminology myself), but was able to find pics online. May try a google search if nothing else. Good luck!!

    Are they both females? One male and one female? Obviously if both males they aren't pregnant.

    Do you know how to sex them?

    You can try to google some images of pregnant platy and compare your platy too those to test. If you are not sure, better be safe then sorry so if you have no other fish in the school, leave them there, if you have others, then transfer them to a 10-20g fry tank and once the eggs are born, then you can raise them and then have more platys. Good luck!
