Schooling question

I was recently told by someone that swordtails and platies will school together. Is this true? Also, will different species of platies school together? I recently purchased 3 sunburst mickey mouse platies and was just curious if they would school with other species of platies.

your platys can breed with the swords,and yes you may find
they hang out together.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I have three Red Wags Platies and one Sunburst Wag. The Sunburst doesn't hang out with the Reds much, and I think that may be do to his color, but as long as you've got a bunch ogf other fish for them to play with they'll do just fine.

Thanks! I wanted to get more platies, but not necessarily ones of the same color. I'm glad that they will hang out together. lol
