Assorted fish are a random mix of different species that are in greatest stock at the time of packaging, hence the discounted price. The species included in any Assorted Fish offer change regularly but attempts will be made to send a mix if possible. The photos selected are examples of what might be included in the Assorted order. Therefore the actual fish delivered are likely to be different in appearance to the website photo (including colour) based on natural variation, age, stress, gender, etc. Please read 7 Reasons that the Colour of my Aquarium Fish look Different to the Photos for more information.
PetWave source the majority of our premium freshwater fish from superior quality local Australian growing facilities. Although this can be higher cost than importing fish from Asia, it minimises the likelihood of your aquarium being affected by imported conditions and transportation stress.
Platy fish are commonly referred to as í_Œ±Live Bearersí_Œå meaning they give birth to fry, rather than lay eggs. This makes them relatively easy to breed and an excellent fish for beginners.
Platies are native to Central America and Mexico and make a hardy addition to most community aquariums.
