    I have a dwarf sunset male platy and 2 female red wag platies. I want to know will they mate?

    If so what color would the babies be?

    Thanks much

    Yes they will mate. Color depends on what is in their back ground.

    Absolutely. In fact, Platy and Swordtails will also mate. I have 2 white mickey mouse females and 1 orange mickey mouse male and their offspring are a cool combination of the two colorations.

    I just added the 2 females and they are still a little shy. I noticed that one of them is following the male now so they are coming around.

    Thanks much
