Another excellent choice for novice fish keepers is the platy fish. Due to its calm disposition, it is a breed that is simple to care for and looks wonderful in just about any community tank. If you follow the rules exactly, it can survive for up to five years. Additionally, most Platies only reach a maximum length of 3 inches, making them quite small.
The vast majority of Platies are classified as omnivores, which means that in addition to eating meat, they also consume plant matter. However, when you are planning their food, make sure to strike a balance. In most cases, veggies should make up the majority of their diet, and they can also include meat in their meals sometimes. In their natural environment, they consume a wide variety of foods, but they gravitate for herbivorous fare the most. Keep the aquarium brimming with plants so that the platies have places to hide and can live out their lives as they would in the wild. This will ensure that your platies are content.
