What kind of fish?
 
Hey there. I know this should be an easy one, but I am not good with fish names. Kind of like music, I know all the songs, but none of the titles. ;-) Could someone please help me with this fish name? Its multiplying like crazy in my tank and may end up giving some away. Or selling to a pet store, if they take em... Thanks!

hi
they are platys,which give birth to live babies,they will carry on producing unless
you remove the males,and even then the female can hold sperm for some time.

here is a picture of the difference.
i hope this helps.
