You can't sex the babies until they get older...sorry. Do you know how to sex the adults? At around 4-6 months I believe the males will start to show their gonopodium and once you have seen it, it is easy to spot. Good luck with your babies.

Goldfish isn't the best choice for company. They grow large and prefers colder water than the Platy.

ok then because my aunt put them in my tank with the rest of my fish, they seem to be getting along with the angels and everything else. my dwarf growami has been hideing behind a plant lately? is there something wrong with it??
