    One of the platys I got today started dropping fry, but they're not moving (4 so far) Could the stress of moving her to my tank from the LFS have made her abort? :'(

    viable....do you mean they are laying on the bottom? If they are laying upside downon the bottom they are dead, butif they're just resting on the bottom they should be fine. Mine did at first and now they are all 30 healthy.

    They're all dead so far- This morning we're up to 19 fry, and my thought is still that maybe the transfer from the LFS to my tank was too stressful that close to her time and made her lose them :(
