new and confused?? breeding
 
i have a 40 gallon trop. tank with 4 danios and a pleco. what would round off my tank? like i adore platys but would they be compatible? what would be the best fish? will pet shops take fish fry?

platys are fine with them aslong as u have a good shoal of danios (6 +) they might fin nipp if not. Ive seen them with guppys aswell.. They are narrow fast moving fish, I would mix them with small barbs (cherry/golden/albino) or like swordtails :).. any long bodied minnow like fishie :]
