View Full Version : how to tell platy fry from guppy fry

03-09-2012, 12:07 AM
i am going to try and post a pic but i am wondering what they are because their whole body is orange like the platies i have but idk if any of my 2 platties were even female and or pregnant. i have heard that guppie babies are blackish or grey... but the whole body is orange (where my guppies are fancy...half orangish half white.) so i am confused. but rather skinny and long like the guppies.. but i guess it is just too early to tell

I don't think it matters a whole lot. They'll either be eaten or you can check when they grow older.

well they wont get eaten because they are in a floating breeder tank...well i know it doesnt matter because i will find out when they get older but i would just like to know

They do look like Platy fry. I'm going on the colour and fins.

i have succesfully determined that they are platy fry(for those of u who would maaybe care) because i can see black spots growing on them right before their tail fin just like my other platy and and very suprised because i did not think any of my platys were prego.
