I just answered your other thread where you asked the same question.:ssmile:

It sounds like she is close now. Can you see the fry eyes inside her? Is her belly huge, almost square looking? The male platy is staying close to her because he knows that they they will be able to mate again soon. You should put her in a breeder net/box if you have one sprinkle some food in there for her so she won't want to eat too many of the fry. That is if you plan on keeping them.
