    OK, are platies pooping machines, second only to gold fish? Or did I just get lucky? :D

    Had them since Saturday & I have been pretty careful about not over feeding so just wanted to ask. Thanks!

    They are not really "poop machines" if you compare them to other fish, but more than tetras. How much they poop depends on how much you feed them though.

    Live bearers in general seem to have a higher bioload compared to a lot of other freshwater fish. I always change 50% weekly in my tank that houses my platties.

    I guess I just got too used to the habits of my cories, rams and danios, thanks for the feedback, appreciated
