I went to petsmart today and got a male and a female platy! I was very impressed by the worker's knowledge, and how healthy the fish were. I would expect much less from a big box store.

Unfortunately I have no experience with them. But I know they're livebearers so it shouldn't be too difficult!

Yea, my favorite fish to breed are livebearers because they are easy to breed.

Those are good looking fish! Love the coloration!

With livebearers, just add water!

Still doing well. I feel bad because my flash accidentally went off in the second picture. Will that harm their eyes?
