My platys have become my favorite fish. Their colors are so stunning, they really show up well in my tanks. They are extremely peaceful and active. A joy to watch!

Hi The platy is very nice fish when I started 6 months before I had two but when I was adding a pair of gold fish my local fish shop owner they are fin nipper if u want to add gold fish you have to remove them even today I also don't know it is right or not but in first look as compare to molly & swordtail they they are better fish

From: Trevor
I think that the platy is one of the most peaceful fish there is. They don't bother any of the fish in my tank and they swim around like they are so happy all the time.
