Ok so I\'m new to the breeding game but I have this beautiful Mickey Mouse platy who I bought (much to my surprise) pregnant. But now I\'m worried about her, her bum is open and pinkish red. She spent most of the day at the bottom of the breeder tank but is now swimming up and down the tank and the length of it as well. Is she in labor?? Or is something wrong

if she's birthing, you should see babies coming out of her if you watch long enough. also make sure you have places the fry can hide, because she may try to eat them if they can't get away easily. live plants are best, but plastic ones are fine if you don't have live ones.
