I've just taken a video which I'll upload later when I find the cord for my camera, but you can't get a good look at him because he's hiding behind the filter outlet (I hope he's not sick).

I just reviewed the video from when my platies were in the 75-litre to see if you could see him. You can see 2 blue platies in that video, but I think they are both females and I lost one of those. The darker one is the one I've still got.

I think i could see them in your 75L tank video but when you can if you could put a picture of your blue one that would be great.
Id really like to get one or two for my tank. I already have 1 red tux female platy, 1 red wag tail female platy, 1 male bumblebee platy, 1 silver female molly, 1 female white dalmatian molly and 1 gold molly. Along with a few male guppies and 2 black and white angel fish.
I like a lot of color in my tank and i think blue platies would go well.

well i heard that blue mickey mouse platy, when you just get them, they dont seems really blue becasue they're scare of you. But once you have them for a while, their blue will comes back .. Right now, my hi fin blue mickey doesnt seens to be blue as before i get them.. so i guess they will turn back to blue soon

pringleman, I'm sorry I won't be able to put his photo up. He IS sick. I'm not sure he'll still be here tomorrow....

(It is him in the video - he's the pale one, the darker one is my female)

You can pick them out yourself. Girls have a triangular anal fin and boys have a pointy one, pointed backwards. Watch when the fish are relaxed, because the girls can hold their fins up against their body and you might think they are a boy, but when they are relaxed and their fin is down, you can see it properly. I say "I only want girls" and "I'll have her and one that colour as long as it's a female". As long as they know what's what, they'll fish out what you want for you. I suppose it would depend on whether the staff there are as good as the staff at the shops I go to, but here they'll give you what you want - either a specific fish, or a specific sex.
