favourite pregnant maybe? :D

This is Frigg, she is my favorite. Don't tell the others ;)
She looks pregnant to me. She has gotten quite a bit rounder since I got her on Thursday. I initially wanted no pregnancies and chose all females for my tank. This one was however in with some males so it is possible. I really hope she is. I would love some baby Platies!!20130527_124846-1.jpg

Lol this is a Platy, not a Betta.

Platy's are livebearers and can therefore be pregnant.

@Jexx, she doesn't look very pregnant to me however I didn't see her before so I could be wrong. You know about how she'll turn boxy when it's time to give birth?

Ya I've heard that. Maybe I'm just being hopeful lol. Maybe she's just getting fat :p But She has that little white thing that pops out when they are gonna give birth. And she's been chasing all the other girls

Ah, her ovipositer. Yeah, she's probably pregnant then, I know they can store semen as well from the fish at the store and then chose when they want to get pregnant. If she's getting territorial and growing fatter without a change in diet, then I would say she's pregnant. You can either let the fry be eaten and see who survives or put her in a breeder box and sell/keep the fry when they get big enough :)

I just had one of my platy fry die on me :( was stuck in the filter today, I think Remmy chased it too much and it died of stress. Rembrandt is the only Betta I can put in there because he's got the longest tail so therefore he can't swim as fast lol, poor sucker. But he was disinterested when he found out they were too fast. So now I've either got 3 or 4 fry, I only counted 3 but the 4th is either in the filter or hiding in the plants which is possible.

This was Frigg 5 days ago.

If you compare it to today's pic there is a noticeable size increase in the abdominal area.

Ah, yes definitely. I also hadn't seen your white/black girl in the fourth picture, she blended with the background haha. But yes I definitely see the difference there, most definitely pregnant :) Unless she's constipated lol

She's not constipated. This girl poops like a monster LOL ^^ They all are very healthy poopers. haha.

So you think she is pregnant? Ahhh YAY!!! I hope so. I have begun to really love Platies. I would love to have more without having to buy them haha. Right now there are only the 2 Platy and 2 Guppy in 20 gallon fully planted tank with 2 filters running. So there is DEFINITELY room for more :D
