Platy color breeding mix?
I'm, as well as my sister, new to platy owning. My sister has two platies, a male and a female. The male is a pintail platy and the female is a calico platy. What kind (if there is one, I'm not sure) would these two make? Is it possible to guess at the colors of the fry?

Just curious. :P

Here's a little picture of the happy couple :) Mommas in front, papas in back.

The colers will vary.I doubte the colers will "mix" though.Youde probly get some pintail and some calico alonge with a few plain red/yellow platies.Theres also a chance shes pregnant with another males fry (a male that was in with her at the fish store if shes a recent purchase)
