Small, hardy, active, peaceful and pretty, the Platy is one of the most recommendable fish for anybody. This little livebearer can be found in several different color varieties, developed through decades of selective breeding.
As with many fish but especially livebearers, the Platy only has 2 things in mind: eating and breeding. It'll swim around the entire tank and eat just about anything, including algae, which makes it a handy cleaner fish as well.
