| || | Neons need groups, and a group is too big for a 2 gal. You said you have neons in your 10? If so, move these guys to your 10 gal. The platy is all the fish that tank can handle as long as it has a filter and heater. Luckily a platy isnt a fish that MUST have friends. Two gallon tanks are limited on fish options. Pretty much a 2 gal tank can hold only one fish. A betta, a platy, or maybe a shrimp with one fish. I personally wish they wouldnt make any tanks smaller than a 5 gal, as anything less than that isnt really large enough for even a betta. Good Luck, and as always, feel free to ask any questions here.

If it is to much for the tank I can transfer them to my other ten gallon tank which already has these type of fish in it. If you have any tips or comments I would love to hear them.
