Platys are a common aquarium fish found in North and Central America. They are a staple for community tanks and will get along with other non aggressive species. Live birth of fish is almost guaranteed in a tank containing mixed sexes, similar to guppies. Platys have been bred to produce many different colors and patterns. Mickey mouse platies get their name for the mouse ears pattern on their caudal (tail) fins.
