platy breeding
 
I have female sunburst platys and a red wag male. what would the offspring look like if they bred?

Guppie luver 02-12-2011 04:19 PM

it depends on the genes it will probly be some all red some sunburst and some black tailed sunbursts

Thanks! I realy like the red wag My wife picked out the sunbursts. I didn't care for them at first, but they are beginning to grow on me. One them is due any day ( I doubt its from the red wag). The other had fry 3 wks ago.

just curious but how big is your tank or multiple tanks

jimtuc 02-13-2011 07:20 PM

my tank is 29g which houses a dwarf gourami 3 platys 6 peppered corys and angelfish. I have another tank that's 25g with the preg sunburst and four 3 week old fry

you should be fine on keeping the fry alive... i keep the fry in the main tank but use tons of floating plants and leave my horn wort floating also... if you want you can get horn wort from pet smart and it is cheap grows fast and you can get a lot fast. That is only is you want them in the main tank... that is what i do
