mtnmonster Posted February 4, 2022 Share Posted February 4, 2022 Shortly after Thanksgiving all my neon tetras mysteriously died. About 3 weeks later I decided to replace them with a few platys. I thought I got all male, but soon found out I had a female. Well I think she will be having her babies soon. For some reason the betta living in the tank hated the 2 black and orange platys (both male) and ended up killing one but gets along perfectly fine with the 2 solid orange ones (male and female). I removed the remaining bullied platy and he has healed up and thriving in my other tank with a very calm betta. I know most, if not all the fry, will unfortunately become food for the 2 platys and betta. I'd like to see if I can at least get a survivor or two. This is my first experience with platys/livebearers. So I'm not sure what to expect or do to aid in possible fry survival. I don't have any other tanks that would be more suitable. Now the tank that has just a betta, 2 mystery snails, and the single platy has more dense plants for fry to maybe hide in. I was thinking of maybe catching a few and transferring to see how it works out. Any advice? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
