P.S-It wouldn't be a bad idea to maybe put a twig cat in there if you have or develop an algae problem.
Thanks! I think I'm going to try 6 Red Irian Rainbowfish, and when they mature if there is room, I might move my platies to another tank add 6 Neon Dwarf Rainbowfish in their place.
I'll check out the twig cats. I was originally thinking a Bristlenose Pleco to control algae.
