Mickey Mouse Platy

Rs. 50.00

history

The Mickey Mouse Platy  (Xiphophorus maculatus hybrid) is a fairly recently developed and extremely colourful variant. It is known for its intense ruby to orange coloration, which often has a distinct striped pattern. The colour underneath the striping is variable, ranging from cream to yellow or orange and Mickey Mouse shaded on the Tail . This is a very peaceful, undemanding fish that will thrive in most aquariums, especially the planted aquarium.  

 

Mickey Mouse Platy is compatible with most other peaceful aquarium species.  It is an omnivore, so it will potentially prey on smaller dwarf shrimp and their fry, but it is otherwise safe to keep with peaceful invertebrates as well. This fish is not a picky eater and it will accept a variety of high-quality dry foods, but these should be supplemented with a variety of frozen foods as well. It will mostly occupy the middle and upper regions of the aquarium, and it does have the ability to jump out of the water, especially while in the early stages of acclimating to a new aquarium. As a result, a secure lid is highly recommended to ensure that this fish does not jump out of the tank.
