I'd say Frigg, her belly is looking pretty squared off, although I'm no guppy expert I assume they are similar. My experience comes from mollies lol

Ok so they have both increased in size over the course of 24 hours. They are both acting batty and panting occasionally. I am wondering if they will both drop fry at the same time?

In my experience with mollies it varied a bit on the size/age of the fish. If yours is younger I'd say she could go any time. If she's acting more agressive that could be a sign, with my fish they'd usually start hiding a lot but I had lots of plants and cover which I hope you have or else the babies may become snacks. Otherwise you could put them in breeder nets/boxes but I find the clear boxes to be stressful for mom, so I'd catch as many as I could and put them in the boxes until they were big enough to swim with the others.
Hope that helps a little! Maybe someone with guppy experience can chime in

The tank is packed with plants, as in I can't find my fish sometimes haha. I hope when the fry are born I can find them because I do intend to raise them in a separate tank. I have a grow out tank ready, it has little Cobra in it right now as she is still not big enough to join the ladies. I have a mesh breeder. Assuming I can find the fry they will go in there for a week or 2 and then be transferred to the grow out tank. Any females will be kept to add back to the ladies' tank and hopefully there aren't any males haha.

Ah good :) if you have plants near the surface, check there when she has them. Also, don't know about platies, and don't know how often it happens, but I bought a young "female" Dalmatian Molly that turned male lol and it went after allllll my girls, and sometimes boys too >.> little gender confused fish haha, but good luck! Post baby pics if you can ^_^

With the platies its kind of hard. I purposely tried to get fish that were not pregnant lol. The platies don't always have a gravid spot like guppies do. Mine did not look pregnant at all. and then 3 days after I got her home, it looked like she swallowed another fish lol. Now a full week and 3 days later she looks like a balloon.
