Sunset Fire Platty aka Xiphophorus Maculatus


Origin: Central America
Temperature: 64 - 77
PH: 7.0 - 8.0
Maximum Size: 2.5 inches
Temperment: Peaceful community fish, livebearer

Very peaceful community fish, can be somewhat shy compared to other livebearers, this could be since we only have 1 male and 1 female, so she's getting the full treatment. Easy to care for and beautiful coloring make the sunset fire platties a favorite. Fry will survive in a well planted tank. The platty fry are adorable, we currently have 10 lil ones.
