walruseggman Posted September 14, 2020 Share Posted September 14, 2020 (edited) Hi, setting up a fully-planted standard 29 gallon (30in L x 18in H x 12in W). I want to experience raising platy fry, but not necessarily looking to raise up 100 babies a month; just a handful of fry a month would be fun. I've kept male platys but never both genders. Looking for either a single "centerpiece" fish, or a small school of hunters to cull some platy fry; neither that would would harass/nip the adult platys, and needs to be plant safe. Just as an example- if I had 6 pregnant female platys, I wouldn't mind if I ended up with 0 to 10 juveniles from those pregnancies all combined. I'm guessing a betta and maybe an angel fish would be on the list of recommendations, so also curious to here others' experiences in using those fish in a role like I've described. Likely tank parameters: Temp: mid-70s F Gh: 6-8 dGH Kh: 3-4 dKH Ph: 7.2-7.6 Thanks in advance, looking forward to hearing from this forum.
