Pregnant female platy question please read

Chantal82

I have 2 tuxedo platy, Georgie and Ember who gave me a few fry maybe 3/5 each 5 days ago but they are still huge like they are not done and mean huge. (refer to pics)

My question is it normal for platy to hold fry after starting to have fry?

Both were moved from community tank to their own little tank 4/5 days prior to labor starting.

Yes, they can hold on to the fry for hours but also for days after they've dropped some fry. That's not unusual. In general nothing to worry about.

Ok thank you

From my experience, platys will drop 2- 3 fry and then hold on to the rest for next week. Good luck

yes, my platy dropped fry in batches over a 4 week period, over 50 in total, and is still pregnant. we do not have males in our tank. first she dropped about 10, a week later about 20 and two weeks later another 20 + and is still huge...
