    How is your fish doing?

    You can tell a platy is pregnant by the huge belly.

    Another thing to look out for if your not sure a fish is pregnant is a disease called Dropsy.
    It causes sever bloating of the fish and makes the scales stand out like a pinecone.
    If this is the case the fish would need to be treated with medication.

    More than likely if the fins are not poking out like a pine cone, the fish is pregnant. Hope all is going well.
