Hey guys! Would anyone here be interested in a few young platies
? They come from a well-established healthy tank. I believe they are about 3 months old, a little less than an inch big (but will grow up to be about 2 inches). Platies are fun to watch and they are hardy fish, tolerant and pretty easy to take care of. They ARE tropical fish, so they will need mid-70 degree water temperature, and weekly water changes (of about 25% volume) to keep them happy. And, obviously, food, flakes commonly found in pet stores are good enough. As far as where to keep them, as a temporary solution a small (about 1 galon) container will suffice as they are still pretty young, but when they grow up, I would suggest a minimum of 5.5 galons per pair (there are tanks of this size sold at Petco for about $10).
Let me know if you have any interest, firstname.lastname@example.org
Of course, we're giving them away for free, for the simple reason that the tank where they currently live will soon be too small for them because there are about 10 other fish in there.
Oh, and here's a picture of one of the fishies:little platy
