Platies - Xiphophorus maculatus
COVID-19 Status - Unfortunately the couriers that had promised to deliver our parcels through December are not meeting the standards that we can accept. Fish welfare will always come first and so we have closed the checkout on the website until we are happy that deliveries can resume safely. This will probably be Christmas. All pending orders will be delivered as promised.
We are open for collections Monday to Saturday until Christmas and will be offering 10% off for all visiting customers. Everything that is listed on the website is here in stock.
Local deliveries may be possible. Please call us and ask.
Platies are a great tropical fish for the beginner. They are hardy, colourful and easy to breed, giving birth to live young. To prevent males fighting, it is advised to have at least 2 females to every male. This will also prevent harrassment to the females.
