I've recently bought into Platys as my tanks was somewhat lacking in the "swimmers" department as I have mostly bottom feeders.
I have Sunset and Hifin Platys and they all shoal around together. They are great explorers and are always swimming around the various plants and ornaments I have in my tank.
They are extremely easy to keep as they will eat standard tropical fish flakes and keep in a mid-range temperature tank nice and easy.
There are so many variations to have it's mind blowing and some really do stand out in terms of colour!
