Always go on the gravid spot, that's definite. Especially once you start seeing babies, like you are! ^_^
(PS they CAN go up to a 45 day pregnancy, we've had a couple of our girls pull that, or just be fat and not pregnant, they're well-spoiled)
It's easyer to watch for the gravid with the platys and my 24 karet molly but ive given up with my dalmations. That dang platy been fat so long i was starting to think she had bloat or constipated and i was starting to look up remedies, im so glad now i can see she is in fact pregnate

I think that sunburst was pregnate when i got her cause i only had 2 girls. I hate having to sleep cause i know she'll have her babies then just like my 24 karet did. At least i have her in the breeding box so i can hopfuly save more then 4 babies
Mind you the 24 karet had her babies about 2 weeks ago and she is pregnate again i could just barely see what i think are babies in her today so she went into my first phase breeder box
