Can platys be kept in cold water aquariums?
The Platy is a very popular community aquarium fish. This lively species loves to swim around in groups which makes them stand out in a freshwater aquarium.
Platies can survive in various temperatures, but are not strictly a coldwater fish. Platies can survive in what we call 'temperate' environments, or room temperature aquariums, and will thrive in aquaria above 20°C.
