I have one adult male platy and four adult female platies. The male is a dawn (or parrot...depending on who you ask what color he is) platy. The females are as follows: three sunset coral dwarfs and one blue rainbow wag. Anyway, I've got some interesting fry currently. The first couple of batches (whose population have been kept way down because of all the good-sized adult fish, including four female bettas) were sunset corals and I have a couple that look like they're going to end up being dawn/parrots like their dad. I have one who looks like he's going to be dark grey. However, I have three newer babies (probably about 1-2 months old) who are blue with distinct vertical black stripes. Their stripes are thin and there are three or four of them, almost like a tiger barb, but the stripes aren't nearly as thick. The babies hide in the hornwort, so it's hard to get a good picture of them, but I'll try tomorrow and put them up. Anyone ever heard of platies being colored like this? I noticed them a week or two ago and since I noticed them, the stripes are getting darker and more distinct. I did a search on "tiger platy" and none of them look like my babies.
