I'm a beginner, and I have a 1.5gal tank. I have 2 swordtails, 1 black tetra and recently I bought a pregnant platy. Because I didn't know how long she had been pregnant I bought her a 2-way breeder. I took out the division of it, cus I felt sad about leaving her in such a small space for unknown time. Yesterday I had to take out the black tetra on a separate tank because I found out it had ich. SO I decided to wash the tank completely and make a 100% water change to avoid the other fish gettiing ich too. While I washed the tank I put them on another recepient. My pregnant platy jumped out of the water while I was away. I came back on time (fortunately she was still alive), and put her back into the water. Then I set up the tank again, arranged their plants, used Tetra aquasafe plus, and Tetra EasyBalance plus. I put the back the swrodtails into the tank, and then I placed the breeder in the tank, and put the Platy in it.
Today in the morning when I came in, there was a jelly-like thing on the corner of the breeder with tiny white spots. A friend says those are her eggs, but I have read platies are livebearers. Did my platy have an abortion?
After this I put in the breeder's division in case they are really eggs from which the fries can be born, and also in case she drops anything else. I don't know whether I rather put her out of the breeder or what. She still has a tiny white spot between her anal fins (which I have read it's a symptom of pregancy), though it is smaller than before.
Here you may see the pics of the thing she dropped
