I have 2 angels, 4 skirted tetras, 3 sunburst platies, 2 dwarf gouramis, 1 paradise fish and 4 tiger barbs in a 60 gallon tank with a rubber pleco.
1 of the platies looks pregnant...
I do not have the space for a brood of platies, i have had platies for about a year now and have never had fry. i have always had small groups.....
will the population of the tank eat the fry? will i be overrun by fry?
should i find a new home for the platies?
any advice thanks

fry will be eaten bythe other fish. try setting up a small 10 gallon devoted to platy breeding.

The fry will be eaten, some stores have things you hang on the side of the tank with tiny slots in it so the fry can get away from all the other fish. Platies are live bearers.
