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.

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
