I take it then that you don't want fry. Well personally i'd go with 3 females then. I have kept 2/3 platy males before in my community with no problems. But just to be sure, i would go with 3 females....
PS... If you do go with 3 females, some pet stores keep both male and females together, so they will be pregnant. If you just let them have the fry in the tank, most, if not all will be eaten by the mother and other tank mates...
If there is plenty of hiding spots, plants(real or fake), driftwood etc, the fry will hide out in these....
The cycle imo
is the hardest part of owning an aquarium. Not hard as in difficult but it's the waiting. That is why i choose the fish in cycle. I have no patience either!!!.
