Platies and swordtails can easily interbreed. I'd get more female platies if your tank space permits it.

Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to  2
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.

i dont know how many more fish you should add.?.?.?. plecos get very large and swords are a good size too. you could probably add a fewmore if they are small fish.

definately add another platy or 2 to keep the other company. i would only add 1 cory if you get more. cardinal tetras are small enough but make sure there is still enough room in your tank for them and the other fish to swim. i wouldnt get any more swordtails if you get all the other fish. it would probably be too crowded.
