Fishy, Fishy, Who's Got the Fishy?

We have finally assembled and filled Eryn's aquarium. She found Mickey Mouse Platys, which I didn't know existed. She saw the Mickey head outline on their tails before I even knew what she was talking about, and then I found the label. So, she has three Mickey Mouse Platys and a Plecostimus swimming around a glow-in-the-dark plant, some petrified wood Scooter picked up as a kid in California, and a tiki head. (Yes, I know it's Mayan, but she accepts that it's tiki, so leave it alone!)

Oops...guess I should have read about the Mickey fish before buying them - I knew they were peaceful and livebearers, but didn't know they need at least 15 gallons (why?) and lots of live plants. Oh well, perhaps they're resilient little fish. I don't have the energy or the desire to keep a tank with real plants in it clean.

Cool, Eryn's got her fish! Glad to see she bought into the Mayan statue as Tiki head; after considerable online research, I am now convinced that no one actually makes Tiki head aquarium statues. This seems like a niche that should be filled in the aquarium world :)

As long as the tank isn't overcrowded (which it shouldn't be with 3 Platys & a Plecostimus) the fish shouldn't have any problems. I'm sure live plants are nice for the fish, but I never had them with guppys, platys, mollies, etc., and they all did just fine.
