Sunburst Mickey Mouse Platy is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cute fishes I started with a pair of Mickey mouse platy in my 36 gallons tank, little did I know a month and a half later I was cleaning my tank and found a baby guppy fish. Now I'm worried about is my clown sucker fish and other fish bothering or eating it because it's so small. What do I do? I don't want the pair to keep having baby guppies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Beginner These fish are some of the best beginner fish to invest in for three reasons: they are hardy, they are beautiful, and they don't get very large (two to three inches). I recently started a fifteen gallon tank. I started with four of these little guys. A few weeks later, I added one more along with four albino cory catfish. The two different fish get along great. A few notes. Make sure you get at least five of these guys together. They don't technically school, but they are social and will do much better in groups. Also, I would suggest not getting more than one male for every three to four females. If you don't know how to tell the difference, look it up or ask a store employee for help. As always, make sure you have an aquarium filter and an air pump. These are standard for having any fish. Also, because these are tropical fish, invest in a water heater.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased! I purchased four of these little guys today for my 10 gallon tank. They appear to have adjusted well. I prepared the tank 24 hours in advance, new filter, water conditioner, slime coat to reduce stress and heater. So far, so good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Eats like a pig I have a pair of Mickey Mouse Platys and my female is a sunburst like this one.She eats like a pig and follows my Cory catfish around to steal there food off the bottom.If I am not careful she would eat her self to death.She actually eats until she looks like she is about to pop.Had to learn how to control her food.All three of our platys like to eat but this one is the biggest pig.We call them Fatty Platys

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Fish!! I bought 2 Sunburst Mickey Mouse Platys yesterday and they are amazing fish! They are very social with each other, and Kujo follows Eclipse around everywhere. They also get along with my Cory catfish, Bunjie, and my African dwarf frog, Kermit. I really recommend these fish for beginners, and I am getting one more and a few guppies soon, too! They are super sweet and love love love to eat! - Maya
