Okay, my 60g now has 2 red wag platys, 2 sunset mickey mouse platys, 2 black mollies and 9 neon tetras.
I'm currently feeding twice per day, but only what can be consumed in 5 minutes or so...
HOWEVER, whenever I feed, it's a free for all of what a casual observer would call starving fish!
Matter of fact, I tried rooting some floating plants (which did sprout roots), but the platys stripped and ate all the leaves off the plants!!!
One of the sunset platys just had a small brood of fry (well, I was able to rescue 911 about a dozen). I temporarily have them in a net breeder basket. The fish know there's food in there and swim around the basket like sharks!
I wonder...should I be feeding more? Can/will they eat too much? Are platys just pigs and I should not worry that they think they're always hungry?
1) Those neons may be small, but when the dinner bell rings, there are streaks of greased lightning that strike the food!
2) Following the WWC, I've been treating the fish to thawed frozen brine shrimp. It no more than hits the water and it's gone.
