Swordtails and platys! (Pics!)

Was at That Fish Place today, and saw some swordtails and platy's. I thought they were so cool that I bought some. I have a 20 gallon tall set up in my living room right now so I figured what the heck! Replaced the gravel with flourite... Dang is that stuff messy! Running a sponge filter in it right now. I have the fish in my convict tank right now (they're bagged).


Sorry about the quality (Iphone)

Hmm the guy at the store said they were platy's I sort of trust you guys a little more though. My personal favorite is the red swordtail.

Very nice choices! Platys and Swordtails are two of my favorite FW fish!

Thanks! I've never been much of a fan of smaller FW fish but I really like these.

Awesome! I have had kept tons of platys over the years. Never kept swords though. BTW, the fish store guy was right, you have all platys'swords. NOT a gold dust mollie. The red velvet male is awesome! Good purchse.
