I have one platy in my tank right now and a blue glofish that is being rehomed at the LFS
. I have decided to stick with platy's because the kids just love them and get very excited about seeing Mickey Mouse. I was going to go with guppies, but since I already have a platy that we just love (she even has a name "Lemonade") and LFS
said they are always looking for more platys. I have read so many articles that conflict about platys in a ten gallon, so I know some will not agree with this setup. What do you guys think of this build:
1 sun burst MM female
1 white speckled female
1 blue MM male.
4 red cherry shrimp.
said he would trade me store credit for new platies so I am not worried about having a ton of fry with this set up. Actually I am excited that the kids will be able to see the life cycle. Also the sunburst in my tank right now just pops with the background. I have the finding nemo background and it is very deep blue. I am thinking the red on the bottom and the lighter platys up top will be very interesting to look at. Here is a pic of my tank:
