Platies, Mollies or Swordtails? That is the question!
I am a current cichlid tank owner, and just tired of the mean spirit of those fish! I want to go back to a peaceful community tank. I only want to get one species of fish with lots of different colors. I have some questions though in order to help me make my choice. • Which of the 3 gets the biggest? How big? • Do they all need salt? How much? • Are all readily available in at least 4 different colors? I would really appreciate any information. I have read a lot on web sites but would like to have the info directly from the people who have fist hand experience. I am leaning toward the swordtail, as I have read that it can get to 4 inches, but has anyone ever seen one get that big? Some also say that mollies get 3 to 4 inches, but again, has anyone ever seen one get that big? THANKS!!!!
