I realize that to most of you, Platy babies are nothing to get excited about, but these are my FIRST fish babies, and I'm super excited!! Check out the cuties!
I hope the photobucket clickable thumbs are ok

Ugh, I have snails too, I keep squishing them against the glass so they don't take over. It's keeping the population down thankfully :)

Oh and I think I'm going to paint/paper the back of the tank black, so it will hide the filter and heater.

Thanks guys :)

One of them is oranger than the rest, if it stays that way, that'll prob be one I keep :) There was one that was resting on a leaf while the others were swimming around it..so I'll have to see how it is. If it seems like there's something wrong with it I'll cull it and use it as a feeder. (I'm so mean:ezpi_wink1: ).

So far so good anyway, so I hope they do well!!:41:

Congrats .... a new fish-mom, I have yet to have fry myself, I suppose I haven't made the tank that inviting for fry and don't expect they'd last long in my tank, I have a couple of voratious eaters in the tank. :11:

Mine kept getting eaten too, which is why I got a breeder trap for them so I could actually keep a bunch of them this time.

Just to update, all of them seem to be doing VERY well, none have had to be culled yet :) It's so cute watching them chase the teeny little flakes!
Is there any other kind of food I can give them besides flake?
