Sorry lightfish, it's difficult to tell where she might be. I know the platy I have that has gotten pregnant in the past typically gets real big days maybe a week before giving birth. I hope that helps. I've read platy's give birth within 4-6 wks.25 Gal - Tropical

Agree it might be awhile...I don't see the gravid spot yet, and she's a light fish. There should be a dark spot neat her caudal fin when she's ready to go (all the babies' eyes!)20 gallon with a male betta, neons, glowlights, and red cherry shrimp.

I'd say she's about 5-7 days off judging on my platies. People talk about them 'squaring off' - mine never did this. However, they are also very young and small (got pregnant in the store) so probably had the babies prematurely. When you look at her from the front and she looks implausibly large, she'll probably be a couple of days off! :)

I got her maybe a little less than a month ago and never had a male platy with her so i didn't know when she was bred.
Should I keep her in the breeding tank or not? I put her in because she looked so fat, but she does not like being cooped up.
But do you think that moving her around that much whould stress her.
