    Default New Sunburst platys!

    I have been having such a hard time finding female guppies to go with my 2 males I finally decided to look for another live bearer with nice colors - 1 male to 3 females - finally found today the platys - they look similar to my tequilla sunrise guppies.

    I put them in quarantine this afternoon and 3 of them promptly hid underneath my box filter (It's about 1/2 in above the floor of the tank) - they are very cute and started exploring their new surroundings - will probably feed them tomorrow evening. Sorry no photos.

    Congrats on the new fish I prefer mollies when it comes to livebearers, but platies are a close second.

    We almost went with sunburst platies when we got ours. We decided on the panda platies. Ours our very active. We havent seen a baby yet....but I am sure the angels are snacking on them.

    I actually found some "dwarf red mollies" last week that were very pretty but by the time I finally got around to going back to the store today they were gone. I love the look of mollies but they get a little too big for my liking.

    The platies are a little skittish right now - they are in my basement with the lights off. Hopefully by tomorrow they will eat and won't be darting around the tank. I usually feed new fish Hikari micro wafers. When I get home I will probably do a water change - large poos from whatever they were eating in the store and check the water parameters.

    I find myself handling new fish with kid gloves to try & not upset them.
