Hey I have notice some weird behavior with one of my platies? She recently had a black and red thing in a white sack and we think she is giving birth? She has the black gravid spots and every thing. The weird part is when my mollies swim by she will swim on her side and let them bite her belly. Its only with the female mollies and I don't know if she is sick or what. Is this normal help????

How long ago did she have the sac hanging out of her?

We've actually had a few instances of livebearers doing this kind of behavior and I think it was attributed to a show of submission. The one that rolls over is being submissive to the one that swims by.

Umm she hasn't had the sac very long about 5 minutes. It is 3/4 of an inch long and her vent is open and red, it is not moving so I really don't know? Thank you

Sorry 3/8 of an inch

Can your post a picture? I can't be sure, but it may be a prolapse.

Could be, it's hard to tell. I'm glad she's looking better.
