Black Phantom Tetras with Baby Platys

Do you think i will be able to put 6 week old Platys (~1/2 inch in size) in a tank with some black phantom tetras?

Thanks

i tried and failed, the black phantom killed them all in 4 days. He didnt fully eat them, but took massive chunks out of them. At least i only put 7 of the 20-something i had in there.

I've noticed that my black tetras would eat any and all fry almost quicker than a more agressive fish would. Weird how that works.

Sorry you lost your platy fry.

Atleast the good party is that you should have more soon.

I have them in my 55 gallon tank suprisingly. I have an angel in there, but it seems that i have enough plants that a few can find a way to survive.
