I have 4 platies since May 10. Memín initially flared to the bag where they came but eventually they got along pretty well. Sometimes Memín chases them but it settles quickly. Platies are entertaining to see as they are always moving around plus their colors are pretty nice. Memín is still my favorite, though, as he is the one that greets me when I approach the tank and his flowing fins still rule.
I discover 4 fry during a water change and then another in the next water change. I put them in a smaller tank and after a few doubts about they actually eating and have been growing fine, but they are still too little to withstand the big guys. I really don't know which one was the mother (they are 3 females and 1 male).
One of my female platies has been unusually fat since at least two weeks ago. I was hoping she had given birth already but so far she hasn't slimmed and I have seen no fry despite my attempts at finding them. I'm starting to worry she might have dropsy, which would be quite sad. She is still very active and swimming through the whole tank, so I still have hopes.
This is the platy in question:
