I don't even know if my molly is pregnant. I think the male is giving her too much stress . BTW how long does it take for guppies to give birth, like the time for the babies to devolp in her stomach?

p.s. sure is not spelled shure. just btw

I think I have mentioned this before (probably in the livebearer forum).
Josh, platys do not have a gravid spot (only guppies & mollies do), platys just get fat. You also will not see eggs, you may be seeing something else - stomach/intestines or bowel, but depending on the colour of the platy, you shouldn't be seeing those either - I'm not sure what you are looking at - maybe take a pic. it has me curious!

It can vary, but with all livebearers it usually takes 28-31 dys for the fry to develop.

well one is a sunburst plattie and the other is a micky mouse highfinned ( coloring is close to a sunburt/transparent color). I can only see when they are close to the middle of the tank ( so the light is stronger). The eggs are sorta pink.
