Platies!

Instead of hijacking another thread, we can all post random stuff about our platies! Choose any topic. I'll start!

Yesterday I got three female platies; one red wag named Bristol, one sunburst named London, and one sunburst mickey mouse named Beverly. I love them! :)))

I love my platies. I have 3. One white crescent platy (Fulla), one red twinbar platy (Frigg) and one sunburst mickey mouse platy (Freyja). Frigg is pregnant and due any time. Freyja maybe too. Fulla is very small. I do not think she is at the least pregnant.

So far all my platy fry except one boy has died. I think it was due to a mini cycle in my tank after my cartridge broke unexpectedly and I just stuffed some AquaClear foam in there instead. I had hoped I had enough BB throughout the tank that that wouldn't happen. It's also possible that Rembrandt chased them to death lol.

He was the only Betta with long fins that I have so he had to go in there because Mercury was literally chasing them to death whereas Remmy couldn't care less after he found they were too quick for him. So only one surviving at the moment, it's a Sunset Wag fry, still only about 2 months old and was the second runt. So he's still kind of small but his colors are finally coming in a little better!!

I LOVE sunset wags! I should've gotten one male sunset and two female red wags... Oh, well. Maybe when I go to get more female guppies... OR I can get rid of my female guppy and get more platies! NOW I'm thinking!

Or I can get a swordtail... Do they have to be kept in groups? I think they can be kept solitary...
