Mixing Platies?

So I'm setting up a 10 gal. and I'm doing 2-3 or 4 Platies(not sure how much yet) and I was wondering. Would it be ok to mix them? Like 1 Red Wag, 1 Sunburst Wag and 1 Mickey Mouse? Just to make the tank even more interesting. Thx for your help

That's fine! You might get interbreeding, but that's what most people I've seen do.

Mix away they are all the same species, well not really a species kind of a man made mix, but they will all do fine together.

I couldnt tell you the specific names of them all, but I have 4 different kinds of Platys in my tank, two of each kind. They mesh well together. Goofy as heck
