One of my Petsmarts hides their Blue Wags away. I bought one and the poor boy had parasites and ugh. Poor Jason. I just want to smash them in the head. And for Blue Wag platys their tails were always Red. Like a Red Wag. Very puzzling.

You have platies?! Any tips you could give me? I'm thinking about getting platies. Is there really a fool proof fish besides bettas? I need something fool proof so I though platies would be good but I need something even more fool proof!!!

Guppies are foolproof. Generally even if you do everything wrong they'll breed faster than you can kill them.

I heard platies were more robust than guppies.

Platies are darned tough! Pro-tips: 1. Don't get all males, if you do then be prepared for fights. 2. They are master beggars, don't overfeed them! 3. Clean the tank frequently, they are poop machines! Cute, but very, very, VERY messy. I would add in Quick Start and Stress Zyme weekly as well as frequent gravel vacuuming. Other than that, adorable and friendly. Mine died unfortunately. One sick platy had parasites and it turned into a fatal parasite/bacterial/fungal attack that I couldn't treat. Poor things. I miss them. RIP: Jeremy Irons (Red Wag), Jason Statham (Blue Wag), James Bond (24-Carat Tuxedo), Rolo (Green Lantern) and Gandalf the Golden (Sunburst) James and Rolo died before I got Gandalf and Jason as I only had a 5 gallon that I regularly supplemented bacteria, vacuumed and water changed.

Good for you !

Poor fish :'(. They're so misunderstood by the general public :'(
