Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fish Super pretty little fish! He swims all over the tank and adds a beautiful splash of color. Does not chase or nip his other tank mates at all. I highly recommend this platy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swimming level: middle/top As I said in my last review, I absolutely adore these fish, and I couldn't be happier with them!! :) However, I wanted to say that mine tend to swim closer to the top than the middle. I also have one that prefers swimming around on the very bottom. A more appropriate swimming level for my fish would be middle/top. It might just be because my tank hexagonal and deep, though. Hope this helps :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright and Beautiful! I got my first Sunburst Platties 3 days ago as my test fish for my new tank. They hid in my plants for the first two days, but they have come out and are swimming around all over my tank! I have a tall, 30 gallon hexagonal tank, and they are making use of every corner. :) They are doing very well with my 4 ghost shrimp and mystery snail. One of my 5 fish died yesterday, but I was expecting it because my tank is so new. The PetSmart workers were very helpful, and I got it replaced for free today! The other fish welcomed my new Sunburst Platy with open arms, and they are all swimming around together. These are beautiful fun fish, and I highly recommend them! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent health, beautiful fish! I bought six Sunburst Plates from the Petsmart off of highway 121. The fish are lovely, robust, good conformation, and have beautiful coloring. They look just terrific against the green in my planted tank. It' been two weeks and each fish is alive and thriving. In fact, three females already dropped fry! This store is about 30 minutes from me but it's worth the drive for good fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Companions, and Very Bright I got my first 2 in September, and they started to reproduce in October. My female Platy gave birth 3 times. And now those babies are starting to reproduce too! That Platy died, but her mate, my second Platy is now a grand father! He watches them swim in their breeding trap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy A few months ago I purchased two sunburst platys, one male and one female. Their both very interesting to watch and seem to get along very well with my two cory catfish. After about a month I noticed my female gaining weight. She was pregnant! She have birth to twenty three healthy babies:) their all doing great, and are getting big really fast. Thank you petsmart!
