At what age...?

Hey, I was wondering at what age do platy fry start to get their colours.
I have recently had a batch of about 30 fry and I can't wait to see what colours they all turn out

It all depends on what you feed them and how often and much you change your water. Usually it took 1-1.5 month for mine to color up.

BBS (Baby Brine Shrimp) is the best thing to feed them IMO. If you don't want to hassle with live food I like Hikari "First Bites". As for PWC's a 25% water change every day would be best but most people can't do that, Just do it as often as you.
