I don't want to just cull them, I'd rather have something in tank to help keep them under control. The problem is, Mr. Thane the Gourami is a jerk, and I don't know what could live with him and be big enough to take care of this. I was thinking of netting some out to feed to my betta (he's in a 5 gallon with some white cloud minnows) but that's not really a great fix, since my betta is lazy and he'd probably just end up living with the platys once they grew up.
grow them out and sell em!
