Hi guys. I need help on identifying what kind of platy hyper is. Heres a picture of him even though I show pictures of him several times:

He's the red platy. Thanks.

After almost a year I had him, I couldn't figure out what knid of platy he really is.

the pic is blurry so its hard to tell, but he looks like maybe a sunburst mickey mouse, I can't tell if he is speckled or 'painted' but thats a possibility also. Platys have been so interbred that he could be a combination of several different traits.

I don't really have a clear picture of him. My camera does not take good pictures of fish unfortunaly.

the pic is blurry but it looks like his tail has a mark on it similar to the MM one, there are many platys that have the MM tailspot but it its more like a random blob.

Here's a picture of him I just took now and it's a clearer picture:

Now I think you can identify him better now.

Looks almost like a red wag platy to me. Or a sunburst wag. Or could just be a mutt (depending on where you get them, they'll have several different colors in the same tank and they inevitably cross breed).
