i got some of these fish And was wondering r they ganna eat there fry like guppies :x :0024:
Aww platies are pretty gentle but they may eat your guppy fry if they fit in their mouths but they wont actually attack anything bigger then its mouth, good lucK!
Will they eat there own fry i mean
Yes some platties will eat their own fry Never had platties but I've heard you should treat them just like guppies and mollies with respect to their breeding.
Thanks now how do i tell when they are close to giving birth :shock:
no gavid spot
Oh yes.. u better remove them before they eat their fry.. they pratice cannibalism.
Hi Mwm, you don't necessarily have to put your pregnant Platy into a fry trap ( I'm not sure what there called) If you have plenty of low plants and crevices in your tank most of them should be alright. What ratio of male- female platys are you thinking about getting if you don't already have them?
theyre not as interested in their fry as guppies, but be aware, they have minds of their own
Yup, they another so its always best to have them sepperate, i currantly have a 10 gal for all my platy fry.
i just got a pair of platies i just wanna know how to tell when the female is pregnant
Same as most other fish like the guppy, she will be bloated and have the graved spot.
Oh i didnt relise he would have a gavid spot
