"I just set up my 110 gallon tank about a month ago, and a few weeks ago picked up 6 Mickey Mouse Platies, 4 female and 2 male. The males are bright, bright orange, with a very clear Mickey Mouse silhouette on the tail, and the females are kind of plain looking, but all are very healthy and happy and seem to be breeding. They stick closely together and sometimes go from one female right to the other! They seem disinterested, but have no choice! They are fairly young, and in the few weeks I've had them, all 4 are looking VERY pregnant! I expect to have fry in the next couple of weeks. A friend of mine gave me his Marble Angel and he tends to keep mostly to himself and does not bother the platies. I don't know why everyone is so worried about getting lots of fry in their tank - that's the idea of a community tank! I'm actually looking forward to having 50 or more fry as time goes on... any excess are going to the pet store! :-)"
