Default Is she pregnant?

I'm having trouble uploading the photo because I'm on my phone. Can I email or text someone to comment the picture?

Hi. I don't know how to start a new conversation. So I'm posting on this too. Is my female sunburst wag platy pregnant?

Most female livebearers that don't live in a convent are pregnant. But she isn't real close. Look for a dark triangle to grow behind the light oval belly.

Not pregnant, (yet) just fat. Female livebearers will develop a dark area in front of the anal fin called a "gravid spot" when they have developing fry.

Thanks but what about my new female platy. I'm not sure if the black spot is a gravid spot or not. Also she has a black part at the top of her anal fin. Is that just a design thing?

The spot on the tail is pattern. The "shadow" behind her belly could well be fry. Looks a little like a bruise, purplish. It gets bigger and darker as she gets close.

Thank you for your input. I don't think it's a bruise. The spot looks blacker when I look closely.

Cool!
Platies are usually gravid if they are wet.
As for starting new threads, look for a big red button that says "New Thread"
