I was at my LFS today buying a couple ghost shrimp for my axolotl tank, and this lil platy got scooped up with them. The owner offered me her(?) for free, so now I guess I have a platy.

I know they're livebearers, is this one pregnant? (The poo is recent since I just fed them)

Also, are they happier in a group? I figured since it's about the size as my CPD they might hang out, but I can get a couple more once I rehome my lemons if need be

I can't say for sure, but if it came from a tank with males, then the odds are it's preggo.

That's what I figured, can you tell if it's close? I'm setting up a 5g right now for it
