Red Tail Black Neon Variatus Platy

There are two species of platy from southern Mexico - platy maculatus and platy variatus. The variatus have higher dorsal fins, jump a bit more, and grow slightly larger than the maculatus. The two species will breed and several hybrids are available - particularly the assorted hi-fin platies. AquairumFishSale.com carries just a few of these select variations for their striking color and great fins. The picture of the neon red tail variatus says it all. These fish can live in freshwater and brackish water.
