What does a Pregnant Platy Look Like?

Platies are live bearers meaning they do not lay eggs, but give birth to young baby fish. A pregnant platy will have a large, distended stomach area, it can get so large compared to the rest of the fish that it looks like she’s blowing up like a balloon. If it is a lighter colored you will also see a dark area at the bottom of her belly, this is the unborn baby fish.
