No.
BTW, I don't know what colors our platys are, but my platy males only like females of certain colors (usually the same color as themselves). Another option is that they are too young, but I doubt it. And this is probably totally silly, but are positive about the genders?

Ok, like I said, it was probably silly.
Since you have some that are the same, I would think color isn't an issue. So, I don't know what to tell you. Maybe your platys are just weird.
Hopefully somebody else has some better insight.

I think they know your intentions and are refusing to breed!

Maybe you just missed it? They could have had fry and been eaten already.

Was just thinking if they are young maybe they only had a few fry so didn't get very big. Just a thought.
