New pics. of my Orca Platies

Here is a updated picture of my 3 bigger Orca platy babies. Out of 6 only 4 survived. These were born from my Bumblebee platies. This color is really rare as the babies carry a lethal gene and do not make adult hood to often.Somehave a little white/grey. I think they look like little Killer Whales that's why I call them my Orca babies. I'm hoping to get a colony of them. Right now they all look like females.Platies take along time to deveop into males. May take several months.

They are so very cute :)

Good job

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
