I got 2 platies as young ones, but they already had their colors when I got them. And while I was in school, they must have had fry because when I got home I looked in and there were dozens of them!
Since my parents wont let me put the fry in a seperate tank, the best I could do was put in the fake hornwort plants and put food in to distract the adult fish.

they really are good oxygenators! but they grow very fast and dead leaves tend to ruin the nice gravels.

My dear friends, excellent oxygenator- will adapt to warm or cold water and can even tolerate small amounts of salt, but contrary to common belief, WIlL BE EATEN BY POND AND RAMSHORN SNAILS. If you havent already screwed up by getting snails -DONT. I started with ONE snail and now have over 300- (yes they can procreate by themselves)

    I love my ramshorn snails. I breed them purposely. My goldfish love to munch on the babies and the adults clean my tank. Population control is easy with fish that eat the babies and eggs.
