    OKolor=Blue]Ok here it goes. I have a total of 7 platy. I research on the web and found that they like to be in schools. What I didn't find out was how to tell the sex and just found that i was sold 2 females and 5 males. They are all swimming around together but i have one male who likes to sit back in the corner and just hover. Is this normal? Is it ok to keep them with this ratio?? Also have 5 bleeding heart tetras that I have no idea what they are Can anyone help me here[/color]

    Its probably best to keep more females but if there is no bullying problems its ok. That platy may be getting bullied or is sick
