Platies - Pregnant or Overfed

So I picked some platies that I hoped were pregnant. Now I can’t decide if they are pregnant or I’m over feeding them. Any guesses?

Well, they're all quite chubby. I'm guessing the top 1 is female, it has a shadow of a "gravid spot". The second looks male based on the "gonopodium". Look up those terms & pics.

The 3rd, I can't tell anything but overfed.

Once females are fertilized, there's no telling how many fry they may produce.. They can often "store" sperm.
This is 1 reason I don't keep live bearers any more. . I wish you good luck!

But feed less...
