Platies come in all colors and mixtures of colors. Some of the most common are: Blue, Red, Red Wag, Tuxedo, Sunset fire, Mickey Mouse, and Gold twinbar platy. "Wag" means it has a black tail. They are a peaceful community fish. Since they are ominvorous these fish will generally eat all kinds of live fresh and flake foods.

The females get up to 2.5 inches, males are somewhat smaller at 2.0 inches. Water Conditions perferred by the Platie are 59-77 degrees farenheit and a ph of 7.0-8.3.
