Fat Fish

Is this fish carrying fry, or am I just feeding it too much?

Those dirty little monkeys...I guess I'll have to read about taking care of them now...just in case.

Re: Fat Fish

I would put that molly at about a week from a fry drop. The platy is a bit further off IMO.

Re: Fat Fish

It's been over a month since that picture was taken and still no babies...I think she's just fat. The other one though, I'll call it the "male" is shrinking. Wasting away. I watch him eat, but he does not put on weight. I'll post a picture of him when I get home. How ofter do these guys get pregnant. Could she have had the fry and then got pregnant again that quick?
