    I breed platies and one of my batches didn't survive only one fry survived in a 10 gallon tank but hasn't grown much from the size when it was born why hasn't he grown?How can you tell when they are male or female?

    what is their diet like? varied diets do best and they definately grow much faster...if you breed them, arent you aware of the male/female sexes? usually around 3 months of age you should be able to tell :)

    heres a cute little pic on the differences of males/females

    is the tank cycled and water perimeters good? any ammonia/nitrites and high nitrates, will hurt them as well as stunt their growth and could cause other deformities...
