    Blue Wag Platy

    I went down to the LFS this afternoon and found some blue wag platies. Got home and did some research on them and couldn't really find much out about them online. Just wondering if any of the good folks here at AC have any experience with them? I do have red wag platies in my planted 55 and they look pretty much identical (except for the blue part of course .)

    Thanks in advance for any input!

    Is it possible to stop this addiction? Wait...........who wants to? Can I answer a question with a question?

    Its just a color variant. One they NEVER have around here, take care of them like any other platy(basically water+food, in that broad of terms...).

    So would I. I'm a platy fan, and I've never heard of blue wags.

    Thanks, Tanker. I was picturing a wag with an almost cerulean body.

    They have the blue mickey mouse one on liveaquaria, but someone had a video of a tank filled with blue wags(black tails/fins). I would LOVE a couple of those...

    I added two blue mickey mouse in on a Live Aquaria order a while back. I was really disappointed. They were almost totally white/silvery. Very, very little blue to them. In a certain light a very few of their scales on the mid body are light bluish, but that's it. They aren't nearly as blue as those blue wags posted in the video (or the blue MM in the LA picture)!
    60 Gallon - 2 Dwarf Gourami, 1 Pearl Gourami, 1 Marble Angel, 6 Harlequin Rasbora, 7 Rummy-nose Tetra, 7 Cardinal Tetra, 4 Albino Cory, 4 Peppered Cory (Yeah, I got a little carried away!)

    27 Hex - 6 Platy, 6 Neon Tetra, 2 Panda Cory (soon to be increased), 4 Oto

    5 Hex - 1 male Betta (Beard), 2 African Dwarf Frogs

    There's one more or less called the blue speckled platy that is more common to find(what I would imagine you would get from the liveaquaria order), barely blue and just hints of blue speckles on the normal upper dorsal spine area of their backs like platy get as they age. Some people say they've gotten the heavy blue with black 'wag' fins at walmarts. If I can actually find the true blue wags, heck, I'd breed em.
