    It's been a loooong time since I've had swords (last time I had them was when I was a kid)- and I did like them. But, I have to say I've grown quite fond of my platy. As hcroark said, they do come in a range of colors...I have a red wag, but she is more of a vibrant orange.

    Platies, but I'm biased because I've only ever had platies :;smack

    Going based on what is locally available I would also vote for platties. I just got panda, bumblebee, and blue wags for my tanks based on what I saw and liked. :)

    They both come in a large variety of colors just depends on what you like and have available to you :)

    I really want blue platys, but I can't find them at my LFS :(

    I just did a google for blue and wow, they are nice.

    I got mine at the local pet smart. I've got a male and the last female and they just had a few fry, hope the three I got into the breeder net do well.

    I'm very excited. Plenty of guppy exp, now for some platy fun :)

    Ah, I want blue platies so bad! I'll have to visit my local petsmart to see if they have any, but usually they don't have much selection.

    I have 3 bumblebee fry though :D they are the cutest little guys ever!

    I like swords. I prefer green swords. They have a pretty mix of green and pink with spots.
     

    Also i like the green Tux and green pineapples. Platy and Swords share a lot of their color patterns.
