They are still doing great...I fed them today.

Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)

Their eyes will be fine. Congrats! How big is your tank? With platys, it is better to have 2-3 females for every male. The males chase the females around like crazy!Your girl will be happier if there is another girl in there. Also, I concur with bruinsbro. Add water and platys will breed!

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, but thankfully they both led to fish stores.

I have 7 Platys. Only one male though. We had 2 more but this male didnt seem to like the idea of any other males in the tank so he always tortured them until.. well, they didnt make it. But he makes his rounds with his lovies, and everyone is happy as a lark

Because nice matters
