    I was wondering, is it normal to see the fry in a Platy's stomach like this? Both of my Platies, a Silver Wag and a Yellow Mickey Mouse Platy, are like this. My Mickey Mouse Platy is starting to get what looks like a gravid spot from the fry being all bundled up in one spot. Like I asked before, is this normal?

    Thanks. I asked people in the past and they were freaking out cuz they never heard of that before. Plus, they were raising Red Wag Platies.

    Your friend with red wag platies couldn't see their fry inside the mum because of the pigmentation of the platy's skin. With fish that aren't as deeply pigmented, you can see lots of stuff inside them, especially with top/back lighting . . . .
