"platies are the fish i used to cycle my two tanks as they are quite hardy. i have a problem with the breeding though as they just will not stop. have given nearly two hundred away and have added two silver sharks to one tank which feed on the fry as live food. have considered splitting the males from females or even putting them into a tank without heat as they are supposed to survive quite well at room temp and their colors show up better. funny thing is i will go to all lengths to save a little one if it gets caught in my filter or ends up in the bucket during a water change even though i'm over run with them. i refer to them as ratty platies because of their never ending breeding which is second only to their continual hunger. an easy and pleasing fish to keep if you can control the birth rate. would recommend as a good starter fish, just stick to the males if you don't want a tank full. the males are the best to look at and a little more interesting in their habits like displaying at each other."
