How soon can platys have babies?

I need to know when my platys can have babies.


Answer by  Tank (539)

Platies become sexually mature at 4 months of age. If there is a male and female in the tank its an extremely good chance you will have platy fry. Platies like most live bearers are known to be the rabbits of the aquarium world. The breed quickly and often. Good luck.

Platys are old enough to reproduce at 12-16 weeks. You can encourage spawning by increasing the temperature slightly and increasing the amount of daylight the tank receives.

Very fast! Platys breed quickly and will soon overrun your tank! they can have new batches of "fry" (baby fish) every few weeks, and they come by the hundreds. Most any pet store platy is mature enough to breed they will be mature around. 5 inches long. Keep one male to a few females and provide ideal conditions.
