The first picture looks like a Mickey Mouse platy, and the second may be a red wag highfin.

I adore the red wags, I have one spunky male in my main tank.
Just got a beautiful little gold twinbar female tonight, she's in quarantine. Tomorrow I'm going to pick up a marigold or sunset so I'll have a little trio.

Very nice. Platys are great fish, sometimes overlooked because they're "beginner fish."

I just think they're pretty. They're calm and get along with my guppies.

They are. My favorites are the "sunset fire" variety: red at the rear, yellow in the middle, and orange up front. Just gorgeous.

If you like Platys , just wait u will have plenty...lol I have many . The hard part is keeping up with who birthed who and get them separated to keep from inter breeding . I have them in 3 tanks and that seems to be good enough to keep the gene polls clean so to speak ....lol
