Mickey Mouse Platy is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Fish I got one of these fish a few days after my first tank with 2 other platys. I bought this fish cause I thought it looked cool. When I put her in the tank with my other fish, she was really friendly from the start. She would never pick at the fish nor chase them away. We thought that we had 3 female platys but one turned out to be a male. So we had at least 20 baby platys in the tank, so we gave the male away and she stopped having babies. This is a very hardy fish and I would recommend this fish to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutest little things These fish are the cutest, I bought them earlier today not knowing they had Mickey Mouse on the tail, super cute discovery later on. Super calm with other fish, and super playful. 10/10 recommend these fish. 1 flaw though, they defecate a lot ur tank gets dirty super quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calm fish I had just bought this fish today and added it with my three other fish. It is a very relaxed fish that swims around and seems to not bother or be bothered by other fish. It is a very interesting looking fish with the mickey mouse look on the tail. Girlfriend loves it and the dogs love to watch the fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very hardy and friendly fish! I bought one of these and it was and still is scared of me. But, that doesn't matter to me. My tank has been up for eight months, and I had a lot of disease swipe through. Every fish died in my tank...Except my platy. He had gotten drops, but the dropsy somehow disappeared. He then got fin rot, and I managed to cure him, and my platy still lives to this day! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Filthy Pigs Very colorful and active fish.Fun to watch especially at feeding time.But they are pigs and they shove our Cory's out of the way and steal there food.So if you have bottom feeders make sure there not skinny while the Platys are getting fatter.Also they swim around with there body waste trailing them and they produce a lot of it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mean spirited and dirty When we introduced Platys in our tank they fought other fish and didn't even get along with eachother. We had to separate one of them (had to purchase another tank), because I didn't want to kill it. The one that has been separated tries to attack the others through the tank. They are also very dirty. They seem to defecate more than other fish we have (cat fish, tetras, or cloud). They seem hardy. But if we would have started our tank with platys, I'm sure we would have stopped having fish. When these die, I will not be replacing them with more of the same.

can these be housed with a beta

Asked by: jerrin1314
It can, but it depends on the beta and the platy.  For example: some betas are aggressive, others are calm. If you have a pretty chill/calm beta I would say yes, although if the beta has been alone for a long time I would see how it reacts. Watch it closely if this is the case. Oh and if you have a tank that's less than 10 gallons no.
