With pandas, you use the normal gender-telling method, right? Like the males Anal fin is pointed and the females is rounded?

Okay, I got a couple questions. I went to the pet store today, the Pandas had little air-bubble things all over them. Is this normal or a disease? And can you keep different species of platy with eachother? Like bubble bees with pandas?

Air bubble things? Could you be more descriptive?

Yeah, don't buy ones with ick. And yeah, any species of platy can live together just fine.
