I have 3 sunburst platties. 2 females and a male I believe. I just added 2 khulie loaches, 6 neons, and 3 phantoms. The platies are the biggest fish in the tank. Tank is a 20 btw. They seem to be fairly aggressive towards the other fish at the start, should I worry about this or?

Have had the platies with 3 ghost shrimp and the shrimp are unharmed. I guess they all just need to get used to eachother?

Not to discourage you, but my experience is that platyes are quite agressive, - or better to say, they can be, particularly the males, - for that reason I don't have platyes anymore....
But many people love them, so maybe its just plain bad luck, or a matter of having more fish, - but....

yeh they are still aggressive towards the other fish. I am going to move them out of that tank.
