hello all, i have gotten a community tank started and have some concerns about my platys. they are very shy and rarely come out to be seen unless they are being fed. even then, they are pretty cautious. the tank is 40g and heavily planted. i have 5 platys, and their tankmates are 3 zebra danios and 3 penguin tetras. I am wondering if the swimming activities of the danios are keeping the platys hidden in the plants, or do they just like to be in cover most of the time anyway. Any tips would be aprpeciated.
Also, I have only had them for about a week. maybe it just takes some time for them to come out of their shells?
