    Okay, so this random blue platy showed up at work in the fiddler crab tank and it was so beautiful but was a MALE. Unfortunately I have 2 females and 2 males right now so I was hoping to add two more females. I decided to get a gold twin bar, and found one with nice black stripes but ended up buying the mystery blue platy! So I'm still at 1:1 MF ratio, but I'm rather experienced with platies and they have enough room and no one is getting chased too much. They are all very healthy.
    So here's the new babies! I'm calling the blue one Naboo and I haven't picked a name for the twin bar.

    EDIT: I have decided to name her Korriban! After the sith planet :)
    So now I have:
    F red wag - Mustafar
    F gold twin bar - Korriban
    F sunset - Tattooine
    M panda - Hoth
    M bumblebee - Coruscant
    M neon blue - Naboo

    I believe he's a neon blue variatus. I have to do a little research, but I've been calling him a neon blue. There's a lot of black, though.

    They're very cute :) although I'm not sure I'm going to be able to add 10 harlequins to my tank. Maybe just 6 :/
