When she starts looking really boxed off then just put her in a breeder box and you will have more than enough fry.

I have about 30 pepperment platy frys that were born yesterday night, and 10 juvenile peppermint platy frys a that are around 3 weeks to 5 weeks old one of which is being aclimated to his new fluval spec 3. And 5 coral platy frys born 4 days ago(only5 cuz my rams ate most of the fry before I saw her giving premature Birth).

Those are peppermint platys I've never heard of koi platys but peppermints is how my LFS sells them maybe koi platys is a nickname to help sell them because I'm sure that's how pple in fl came up with the peppermint nickname. And coral platys look like this

Hey everyone if two platys have fry. Can the fry mate(interbreeding?) and have successful births or no?

Ok cool that's what I payed because I got them on sale because they were 3.99 over here. But I got them for 2.99. What should I sell them for when they're big? 1 or 2$? Any opinion?
