Okay, dumb question: What is a platy? I see many people on here talk about them but I can't seem to find them in the gallery. Is "platy" short for something else?

Thanks for indulging a "newbie". Embarassed

Oh, I'm so blind......NEVERMIND!
I found them in the gallery and I definitely don't want them in my little 10 gallon tank. My betta would probably have them for lunch. Plus I don't need tons of babies. Rolling Eyes

I have a betta with a bunch of platys. Yes some of the babies get eaten but they reproduce so easily that some do survive the carnage.

10g I would think is a bit small for a group of platys because they are impossible to stop from having breeding.
