More fish ...

Added 3 neons to my tank the other day (new set up) everything has been going well so far! I also have 2 platies in another tank I want to add at a later date ... Do you think I should get 3 more neons before adding the 25 platies ... P.s it's. 95l which I think is around about 25g tank.

Since platies are able to reproduce after 3 or 4 months and they're live bearers 25 of them would quickly increase.

Yeah so I wouldn't because you adding the 25 baby fry and that would be too much. I would add anything if your adding the fry.
