What kind of Platys are these?

SuriahAnderson

Hi, so I currently have four different platys in my tank, one of them is a bumblebee Platy, and another is an orange Micky Mouse. But I was curious if the other two have a specific name pertaining to the coloration and patterns. One of them is orange and covered with black spots, while the other is more of a pale tan with black fins and markings. I'm attaching some photos for visual identification.

(Sorry if the picture quality isn't the greatest.)

If anyone can tell me what type these are I'd really appreciate it.

Don't know what to call the one with all the spots, looks like most of mine, so i would call it a mutt! Though i believe in a store the term is "assorted platies".

The other one has the coloration pattern i associate with like a red wag platy. Least thats all i see in my area marked like that.

The orange one with the spots, "Painted Platy" is what the stores around me call it.

The other one I'd need better photos. It looks like maybe a rainbow wag. So the "wag" is the black fins but the base color determines the rest of what its called. Most common we see is "red wag" but this one isn't a red wag

You've got an orange wagtail platy and an orange calico platy. If the black was more present on the sides and more like a whole black patch, it would've been an orange tuxedo. But it's a calico in this case.
