Platy assorted 5cm

Cooranbong Aquatics


Closely related to the Swordtails, Platies are extremely interesting and elegant fishes to further enhance variety of color, shape, and type in your aquarium.

Also called the mickey mouse fish, these are easy to look after as they are hardy and tolerant of most conditions, and thus perfect for those who are just beginning with their aquarium or cannot devote much time to cleaning and maintaining the water. Platies should generally be kept in larger tanks as they are very prolific live bearers and tend to have frys very often. That does not, however, count as a disadvantage because platies are beautifully lively and colorful fishes that enhance the ambiance of any tank.

So if you are looking for a low maintenance, hardy fish that is equally a pleasure to watch, then a Platy fish is what you are looking for.
