Platies spend most of their time swimming in small groups in the middle of the water column, among the plants and hiding between the floating leaves.
Platy fish can jump! Remember to always keep the tank covered as they can jump out the tank.
They are not usually aggressive, but you might find that the males overwhelm the females if you don’t keep the right ratios (1 male : 2/3 females is a good rule of thumb!).
All Live Fish are only available as in-store purchase. Each species may vary to the images and at times colouration may develop in different patterns and at different life stages. Visit in-store and discuss with an Animates team member if you have any questions about our range.
