I know about Central American fish but unfortunately have no experience or knowledge on platies.
Perhaps peruse our fish profiles until someone comes along who knows??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

most cichlids likely won't get along with platies.

Glowlight tetras and Lemon tetras are from central America and will get along with platies. you could also put Red Severums. They get large but aren't very aggressive

It seems like there are no fish (other than my original plan of guppies and platies) that will work in my aquarium, so does anyone know of any shrimp or snails from Central America?
