He said a 1000 not 10000
So technically he'd have 10 platys in 10000 gallons lol

No, just get 100 platys, 25 males and 75 females.

With a tank that big I'd create some amazonian waterway replica. I'd create the same world you'd see if you would put a mask on and dunk your head underwater in a pristine south america river. Environmentally accurate survival of the fittest type thing. Fish would get eaten, wounded, scarred, breed.

Funny you should say that. I've already got plans for when I buy a house by the water. Cold water tank, native species from the lake and the thermostat would run a pump down in the lake. Water gets hot, pump turns on and brings cold water to the tank, overflow drain up top so it just drains out (using the ground as a filter, not straight to the lake) as cold water comes in. No need for testing, possibility of diseases yes but it's about as natural as you can get.

Basically recreate the lake, using the lake. Don't tell the minstry tho, something tells me they frown upon these kinds of things.

In reality your simply physically separating a small chunk of the lake while leaving everything biologically connected.
