Are coral platys smaller than other platys?

Do coral platys really stay smaller than other species of platy? I just bought two today and put them with my two sunburst platys in my 28 gallon. If they really stay a bit smaller, I'd like to get some more.

No. They're still the same species, Xiphophorus maculatus. Anyone can claim there is a dwarf platy which seems more like a stunted form to me. Someone claimed before there was a dwarf angelfish. It's only a stunted form. There are only 3 species that exist, nothing else.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
