Update: Fry! (was When to move my pregnant Platy?)
Here's my female Platys, as you can see she looks like she's almost going to burst. But I've seen pictures of them even fatter than this.
She's in her own tank right now, with a birthing tank next door, same shape and dimensions, with just heater and sponge filter (the sponge part is in with her, maturing).
Should I move her over now, or should I maybe wait for her to have the babies where she is? I don't want her to be stressed and "absorb" them (that would be a lot to absorb).
I can only hope she has them on the weekend or some day when I am home, so I don't come home to a lot of eaten fry. I have a breeding net but it's the wrong kind, without any holes for the fry to fall out or swim out of (I guess I could make some though!).
40L - 1 opaline gourami
160L planted - 8 harlequin rasboras, 6 tiger barbs, 2 swordtails, 1 bristlenose pleco
