    I had 2 Platys and a Swordtail in a 7 gallon QT tank and they all gave birth at practically the same time. I put in floating Anacharis and some rocks so the fry could hide out.

    Here are some brownish yellow ones listed as "Feeder Platys". Says they are Poecilia variatus though. Aren't Poecilia Guppies?

    I enjoyed looking at the wild varieties of Platy at this site .
