Small Fish

    I have Platys in my 30 gallon tank, I got them when they were babies, about a month old, and they are doing great. But there is one of them, who is just small. He is about half to a third of the size of the others. Is this normal? He doesnt seem to be sick or mishaped or anything like that, swims with everyone else, just as active, just small.

    I think that just happens sometimes. He was apparently "the runt of the litter"

    Agree with above. I have one who is WAY smaller than its siblings

    Being the runt of the litter will not mean that he or she cannot lead a full and happy life.
    If any friends poke fun at your fish, tell them that you have been working on the dwarf platy, and that current offer is $5,ooo, but they can make a higher bid.
    Seriously, though, it is the differences that make life interesting--all the best to you, rick
