Elijah what's going on?!
My male Platy Elijah seems to be pregnant. Yes, my male Platy looks pregnant! His belly is squaring off, just like a female before she gives birth. The black line is where his belly normally is, and the green one is where it is now (His fins looked like part of his belly in this picture). This wasn't the best picture I've taken of him, but I took the picture before I fed them, so they were going crazy.
Weird, huh? That's what I thought! I've heard of females "turning into" males (being "late-bloomers" so it was hard to tell whether it was male or female), but never a male turning into a female! Well, I'm going to fast them tomorrow, since I somehow forgot today, and maybe that'll help. I already fed them peas in case it was SBD.
I should be getting more baby Platys soon! Java is gone again, but I'm going to try to find him again, we'll see how that goes. Other than that all is well with my fish!
