"The white film could be Ick. Female's get EXTREMELY stressed when carrying fry and if they are the only Female for the Male, even once pregnant, he will literally chase her to death by still trying to mate. I have found Platy's to be the worst for this situation and the 3 Females I had got pregnant, and then stressed out and died from what looked to be Ick (white film anywhere on the body, particularly fins and mouth)Two of my female Swordtails have also died from this same stress. Other fish such as Gourami's will notice the change in the Females Biological Structure (having fry inside does create a different smell in the breeds)and will also chase the pregnant female knowing she has 'food' in the fry. I have a female platty and swordtail now pregnant, no ick, I treated the water with an Ick treatment BEFORE they got pregnant, not during."
