    I have a female that has looked like she was going to drop any minute for the last 3-4 days. She is spending a lot of time hiding/laying on the bottom of the tank breathing really fast like she is getting ready for delivery but it has been like this for days:;dk Do you think the fry are stuck and she is having a problem dropping them? Can that happen????

    I'm not sure if they get stuck but my sunset platy started doing this last week on Monday. She continued to do this and finally on Sunday morning there were a lot of fry hovering around the gravel. I set up the breeder net and scooped up over 50 fry.

    I think so because she laid on the bottom of the tank breathing heavy for 3-4 days, I thought she was delivering or getting ready to deliver.
