Red Wag Platy
Great, hardy fish.. but so many fry.
These were the first 2 fish I got for my 20 gal, I'm a new tank owner so every level in my tank has been off at some point.. but they've both made it through. Definitely tough little guys.
The only downside is the number of babies they have.. I didn't know they sold male and female ones (I would assume Petsmart wouldn't want just anybody breeding fish) but now I have a population control problem. Hopefully by adding some Gouramis or Danios I can bring it back to a decent number.. otherwise they're great starter fish.

The best fish for tropical community aquariums!
Platies are great beginner fish and will fit into just about any tropical community aquarium. These brightly-colored fish are active, very cute, and fun to watch. As long as the other members of your aquarium are as peaceful and easygoing as a platy, it will fit right in. Platies are also very hardy and not too difficult to care for compared to some other species, making them great for anyone who is new to taking care of fish.
