If you have the ability to, you should always have more females than males to increase the odds of a pairing. As for where to locate breeders, if your local stores don't carry them, you may want to contact a Tropical Fish Club or Catfish Club in your area. If you google "Fish Clubs" and add your state, you should get a list. As for buying online, if I were to do that, I would be buying a number of younger fish and growing them out. Not that I am skeptical, but you never know when you buy site unseen that you are really getting what you wanted. I've only bought fish I've watched before I paid for them.

Hope this helps...

Can Playts mix with Tetras, neons, guppies? Or any suggestion of what else I can put with these? I also have a couple of snails (not sure if they are apple snails) plus I gave a single large angel fish that does its own thing

It depends on the types of Tetras you want to mix with the Platys. Some are more aggressive and may chew on the Platys. Neons are Tetras and can mix. Platys and Guppys can mix

We have Slimline Tetras and Red Eye Tetras, neons, male guppies and the angel all living in harmony - really like the look of the Playts

I'm not too familiar with Slimline Tetras but they may just be a new name for an old fish or a new variation of an old fish. That being said, if these fish are all living in harmony with the male Guppys, mixing in some Platys should be no problem.

Hope this helps...

Breeding is easy and fry are often strong enough to survive with little to no special care. Then as they get older they start developing their colours which is so exciting as you find out who the father was or even surprise yourself with a cool new variant you haven't seen before as the result of mixing colours from parents.
I agree so many different colours and tail types. They sell pritty cheap but if your have multiple females you could get alot of fry. My three females had 50+ fry
