I'm used to it. She's a doctor, and she is on call ALL THE TIME. She is off now, and it turns out we don't have any. I'll get some soon.

I LOVE platies! i really miss my boys- Bumblebee (Bumblebee platy), Peter (sunset), Rico (orange jumbo), Twilight (sunset wag), Digger (sunset ; Peter's brother), and 4 more unnamed boys.

I hope to get some blue lantern female platys some time soon. Would a 'colony' of 6 be good?

hi-fins, swordtails, and regular platys will all mate with each other and produce hybrids. That's why I only keep one 'species' in each tank.

No problem! It won't cause deformaties, as long as they are not inbreeding ;)

I didnt mean to get a female, but it was busy in the store and didnt have time to really check them thoroughly.

will have to find out about breeding them if it comes to it.

You don't even need to try. Most likely she is already pregnant when you got her. They usually all are. I don't mind taking care of fry, but that's just me. I'd say to get a breeder net and have the mom give birth in there, and keep the babies in there until they are big enough to swim with the adults. The thing with platys is that they are really easy to breed, and really fun to watch the fry grow up.

EDIT: Can I keep just female platys together? Or will they fight?
