fishy tales

I noticed that my Mickey Mouse Platy was chasing one of the reds around the tank earlier, so I looked up platy behavior to find out if this is normal. (it is) I also read up on how to determine whether you have boy or girl platys, because they're live bearers. Turns out this is fairly easy because it's done by fin shape. The author also noticed you can tell if you have a pregnant platy by three means: she's gotten quite fat, she has a dark spot over her ventral fin, or she is female. That gave me a giggle. Seems they are the rabbits of the fish world.
