Hi everyone! Fish Newbie here. We have had our aquarium for just under 2 months now. It’s not a big setup 30L tank with two filters (overhead and sponge), 3 platys (2F & 1M), 2 black widow tetras and 1 Cory. I’ve done lots of reading /research on water parameters & tank is cycled, water conditions good
Anyhow, one of our orange platys has a nice round belly on her. she does love her food (they all do!). They get fed Hikari micro pellets once a day. She’s been with our male blue platy since the pet shop 7 weeks ago so she could be pregnant.
But she hasn’t got the dark/black gravid spot on her so I’m not too sure….She is quite a big bigger than the male & same size when we got them same time. The male follows her everywhere. I just want to prepare for fry (possibly use a breeding box at the last moment) to avoid fry getting eaten by the others.
We only have artificial plants in the aquarium & hoping to get some advice from platy breeders as to what I’m in for!
I was planning on using the breeding box for as minimal a time and transfer the babies into another ready cycled tank. Just won’t know when to expect fry!
