Striped platies?

Has anyone ever seen platies with verticle stipe? My fish recently had babies a few weeks back and I'm pretty sure they are going to have random stripes. Thanks

Platy colours are constantly changing, when the fish are kept at a store they aren't segregated into colour types, so interbreeding amongst variations takes place.

The constant interbreeding of colour variations means that anything is possible!

Here's some "red tiger" striped platys
