Platies are very gentle community fish. As with other livebearers, males tend to chase the females a bit. Try to maintain a ratio of two females for each male. Platies are peaceful active livebearers that do well in an active peaceful community tank.
They eagerly accept food from all levels of the tank, their slightly upturned mouths give them a preference for top feeding, but they are quite capable of catching food in mid-water or picking it up from the substrate. Being grazers they will pick at plants or tank decorations. If there are soft plants and algae, feed once a day. Otherwise, offer small meals twice a day to match the natural grazing behaviour better. Feed baby fish more frequently for the best growth.
As long as the water is clean, platies can tolerate a wide range of water conditions, They prefer water with a temperature range of 18 to 25°C (64–77°F).
