I had three until this morning. There were two males and a female. One of the males looked like a female when I purchased him. Both of the dead ones looked pretty beat up. Turf war between the two you think? It's a pretty well planted 20 long with plenty of rocks, spiderwood and a couple of caves.

One of them was a female. I bought what I thought was a pair from an online store some time back. The smaller one did look like a female, but I noticed over the weekend that her "mohawk" started to develop and tail was getting some color. I would've removed him immediately, but I'm having to recycle my QT tank so nowhere to put him. I made sure that my tank had areas where they could each stake a claim, but apparently that wasn't good enough.

When it rains it pours too. One of the classrooms I watch after has a variety of fish, and the sunset platy was lying motionless on the bottom of the tank this morning.
