    Wud it be ok to put my pregnant platy in a 11lt tank over night to give birth?
    its got water from my main tank and a filter from main tank in at the min but the filter is huge and to powerfull so will have to come out wen platy goes in, i do have a large fry net in main tank but its got the 5 fry i managed to save 2 weeks ago in it
    I wud have just left her in the main the tank but wesley the weather loach can get into every nook and cranny in that tank and the fry wont servive.
    Sorry my question is can i put my pregnant platy in a 11lt tank with no filter over night/day to give birth wen i see the signs shes ready? For no more than 12hours
    Thank you for reading

    Yes, just pay attention to how she looks, if she ever looks like she is gasping for air that's because she is. But with that much water she won't deplete the oxygen that fast.
