"I am fairly new to the platy world. I bought my 1st trio in early May this year, keeping them in my 10 gallon as a temp home, was looking for a 20-30 gallon tank at that point anyway. I then had 1 white male with a couple of tiny black dots on either side of his body right before his tail, the 2 females are orange and black calico, I think. 1 female has been pregnant seems like most of the time I've had her, the other has just gotten a little bigger, but never dropped fry to my knowledge. Then I bought 2 female jumbo tri colour and 3 blue tux, 1 male 2 female, the male disappeared that night and 1 of the tri colour died under questionable circumstances, my husband played shakira waka waka beside the tank and an hour later the fem tri was upside down on the bottom with a hole in her head, shakira and shaun killed my fish lol. Last weekend I added 3 new platy, 2 males and 1 female, the m/f pair were bright yellow on the front half and bright orange on the back half, then a similar smaller male mickey mouse. I lost the mickey and the new female in less than a week, not sure why. Now I have almost 20 babies ranging from 2 months to a few days, but because the 1st 3 came from a mixed tank, I have what looks so far like orange and black calicos and something of a blue variety, my 2 month old is a pearly blue white with a little black showing up now, thinking maybe blue or blue tux possibly. Is there anywhere I can find all colours available so I can find out what I have, and what these newer babies might be when they get all their adult colour?"

20 - 18 = ?
