    I find I have fish that hang around underneath my breeder nets because small particles of baby food drop through. Could it be aggression with the food? Platies are such piggies, they will eat whenever they possibly can, even if they're very well fed. Then again, mine have never showed aggression, so perhaps this is something else entirely. Just my thoughts.

    I agree with Shawnie, theres a just too many fish in the tank for everyone to be able to get away from each other :(
