overviewPlaties are hardy, inexpensive, and easy to breed in large numbers, making them ideal feeder fish for your larger carnivorous inhabitants like cichlids, large catfish, and other piscivores. This feeder pack arrives with 85-100 specimens ranging in size between 1/4" - 1/2."
To raise, the Platy requires an aquarium of at least 10 gallons that is densely planted with hardy plants like Java Fern and Java Moss. The Platy is a livebearer and is capable of reproducing at three to four months of age. The male is smaller and more brightly colored than the female, and can be distinguished by his gonopodium. The fry will most often reach maturity in a community aquarium.
