Overview: Platies are one of the most fun livebearers that come in all sorts of colors. They're a bit bigger than guppies, but smaller than mollies, so a great size for most tanks.

Setup Considerations: These fish will readily adapt to many different aquarium setups. They appreciate having biofilm and algae available to graze on between feedings and providing lots of surface area in the form of plants and hardscape will give them ample grazing opportunities.

Specific Care Requirements: If the aquarium has enough cover, lots of babies may begin appearing. Over time, the population in the aquarium can explode. Periodic thinning of the aquarium population may be necessary to prevent Platies from becoming overcrowded.

Diet: Peaceful Omnivore: These fish are not picky and will eat most standard aquarium fare. Including some veggies in their diet will help them live longer, healthier lives.
