These guys can be shy (adults) or just plain too active (the youngsters) but i at least got some nice photos to share.

I have an adult male named Rocket in my 46 gallon with 2 youngsters (he is unrelated). One of those youngsters is female and is going to live with my coworker once my tank is all clear of flukes. The other is male and we are keeping him, his name is Crafty.


We have an adult female in our 20 gallon named Pilati (my husband thought he was funny). Shes also with two of her children (shes the mother to all of the babies). Though, the youngsters may be moved once we get another tank.

But anyways, theyre all cute and i want to post some photos

This is Pilati (i dont have photos of the two youngsters with her yet, theyre hiding well. But both are blues like her)

This is the girl my coworker will be taking. Shes a little glutton.

These two photos are of Crafty, who got his name because when we caught all of the fry to separate them to find homes, he was the only one who repeatedly evaded our net. So, he stayed and hes one of ours now regardless.

Wow! They're so beautiful! I love the iridescent shimmer they have.

And Crafty is an adorable name for a fish that evaded the fry net, lol. One time I had a brand new tuxedo born and he burrowed into the gravel to get away from my net. He survived and is a big boi now.

I dont really have a name for her yet, but this little girl is adorable. I love how their colour changes on the angle. Same fish, same light, different angle.

I had bought them in 2015, the first time I really have a fish tank. My family members pick theirs own fish, I remembered my kids pick them and they were orange, orange with black. That was it. :)

Sound like orange wag platies or orange Mickey mouse. They got blues, rainbows, blue coral, green lantern, etc now. I got all blues. I may pick up a blue coral possibly, but for now just got blues. I had a beautiful gold mickey mouse high fin, but she passed away.

Im more partial to mollies of the livebearers, but i find platies to be more mild tempered, a little skittish at first, but pretty docile. A nice cool-water livebearer.

I have 5 permanently, plus one older youngster growing out for my coworker.
Plus 6 under-week old fry growing out in a nursery until large enough to not be a snack. Then will grow out in the community tank before they find homes too.

One of the tiny 6. Theyre so cute.

Pardon the poop, but this is the mother to all of these youngsters, Pilati.

Im thinking of breeding the unnamed female youngster with Rocket when she is older. I want to see more stripes on the body like Rocket has, and she has very faint ones, so im thinking it could help bring them out more. Plus theyre unrelated. All of these are from a random petstore father lol they live in separate tanks
