Male platys and Mollys can be very territorial. Certainly something to watch if there is more than one male.

Okay. I got 6 live plants, 3 female platies, 2 neon tetras, another ornament, and a 3 way breeder. I know I didn't get 5 females but remember, I'm going to raise fry. I need space for them later on.

Okay... I have a question. Can male Platys have gravid spots? Or is it a disease? You can barely see it in the picture but it's there.
