Pregnant Platy Or Over-feeding?

    I also considered bloating but the fish isn't having any trouble at all with buoyancy or swimming, is active, and eats.

    I don't feel that I am over feeding but let me know what you think.

    I feel like this question is asked a lot so thank you for helping, I just got these platy about 1-2 weeks ago, one of them already kinda looked pregnant (the fin confuses me though, looks like a male, image 3) but I noticed this one (1&2) is getting big-bellied now too.

    The top pic is female and starting to get a pinkish gravid spot which means pregnancy. The middle one is male so maybe you might want to lay back on the food. Only as many as your platys can eat in 2-3 minutes.

    Ok I'll do that, thank you so much!
