Good idea that would work. I do have a heater thanks

I'm planning on setting up a sorority in my 12 gal. Sorry if this has been covered already in this thread, but how do I go about introducing them? I'm getting around 6 females; do I put them in all at once or one at a time, or in groups?

Actually, if you are able it's best to throw them all in at the same time! This way neither of them have territories to fight over right away.

We're trying to cut down on stickies so just bookmark this if you want to show others, although as stated; I don't agree with the initial addition she had posted up.

How many females could you fit into a ten gallon with two platies? I may also include a male if that is possible.
