    That is all. :p















    Just kidding here's some pics. I only have 4 platy at the moment they are all male. They only had 4 male and a couple female so I had the males. I am keeping a very close eye on the water condition and hope to add some more fish in the near future. I've had these 4 for about 2 weeks now. They seem happy, I hope their happy.

    They are so difficult to get good pictures of!

    Congratulations. :D

    Don't forget to quarantine any new stock in a separate tank for at least 2 weeks (preferably a month or so), to screen for diseases. :)

    The QT will need its own heater and filter and some decor to hide in, but you could keep the base of the tank bare for easier cleaning, and it doesn't need a light.

    I have java fern, amazon sword, frogbit and vallis.

    Your fish look lovely. :)

    Thanks. :D
    Yes I have a spare tank that I will get set up before hand. I'm not going to rush things as I want to make sure these ones are happy first. I'd like to get another 4 fish I think if the water conditions allow. :)
