Platies are very popular tropical freshwater fishes held by aquarists around the world. They are extremely beautiful, small fish and come in every single color imaginable. Part of their popularity is due to the very low experience needed to keep them. Males grow to about 4 – 5 cm and females, being a little bigger, can grow up to 5 – 6 cm. Platies are native to both Central America and North America. There are numerous types of platies, but all are hybrids of two species heavily interbred in order to reach their full potential. The two most common species are Southern Platy (Xiphophorus maculatus) and Variable Platy (Xiphophorus variatus).


Platies should be kept in medium to hard water with a total hardness (GH) of 5 to 25 °dGH and a carbonate hardness of 5 to 20 °dKH. The pH should be 7 to 8.5 and the temperature 18 to 28 °C.


They are omnivores and will eat a variety of foods. Feed a varied diet of frozen, freeze dried and flake foods. How compatible is it with other fish? A peaceful community fish.
