"I had been keeping other fish for a long while, but when they died, I went to my pet store and told them I wanted something simple and colorful since I have very little time these days for the care. They gave me two Platys-one bright orange male and a lovely female. I had them for approximately two months when I was feeding them one day and as I watched them, I noticed something from the corner of my eye.. moving on the other side of the tank.. I was amazed to see 2 very small Fry! Never having had these fish before, I was not prepared for this and was thrilled. That was about 6 weeks ago.. now I have six fry.. each pair at a different rate of growth. I have not separated them from the parents and all are coexisting nicely. I do have one observation, however. Even though I have learned through reading that the males do not show their colors until maturity, I have one Fry barely larger than a grain of rice who is a bright orange just like the Papa .. while the 5 others are colored like the Mama. All in all, I have decided that Platys are definitely my fish of choice."
