Baby Red wag plattys


Here are a few pics. I lost count at 15 babies. I was suprised when I saw them swimming with the other fish, and my other fish did not try to eat them.

haha. I had those fish once and ended up getting rid of them when I got tired of tons of babies every few weeks
You'll make good friends with your LFS for trade-ins, or if you have cichlids, you'll have good live food

Yeah dude those babies are only 3 weeks old. I wish they were 2 months old so they would be bigger and i could get rid of them

fyi, it did take a while to get rid of the fish to the LFS, since they all want the fish to be at least 1" long or so. It can easily take a few months to get to the size they generally will accept.
