I originally asked my LFS for 3 platies, 2 females, 1 male...after much research (and thanks for the pics here!) I was able to see that the guy got the fish sexes backwards and gave me 2 males and 1 female....so I noticed my female was hiding a LOT and the minute she would come out one of the boys would chase her back into hiding...so I bought another female and that seems to be helping somewhat...anyhow my question is: Is 2 of each sex okay? I really don't want a big tankful of platies and I hate to have to get rid of any of them. I get really attached pretty quick to my fish =/ It's a 29 gallon tank btw with 6 zebra danios, 3 ottos and 1 blue mystery snail.
