The Platy, also known as the Moonfish or the Southern Platyfish, comes in many colors and fin variations, the most common being a brilliant red. The fins may alsovary in length and color. Some variations are the Wagtail, Blue Mirror, Simpson Tuxedo, and Simpson Coral Platy to name a few. Platies add brilliant colors to the aquarium as well as being very easy to keep, making them a great fish for beginners and accomplished aquarists alike.
The Platy requires a tank of at least 50 litre that is densely planted with hardy plants like Java Fern and Java Moss. They are very peaceful fish and make an excellent addition to the community tank. Any other peaceful fish can be housed with them.

The Platy is a livebearer and is capable of reproducing at three to four months of age. The male is smaller and more brightly colored than the female, and can be distinguished by his gonopodium. The fry will most often reach maturity in a community tank.

The Platy is an omnivore that will eat commercially prepared flaked foods and algae, as well as freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and brine shrimp.
