I'm toying with the idea of getting a trio of Platy males in a 20 gallon high, and I'd like to know how they would interact as far as aggression, displaying, and social behaviors go. I know that most caresheets say Platies are pretty peaceful, but I also know that captive lines of Platies have been hybridized with Swordtails (which have very territorial/aggressive males) so extensively that I'm wondering how that has impacted the behavior of the commonly available Platies. Anyone have a group of all male Platies and can tell me from experience what they are like together? Also, what kind of Platies do you have, and how much individual variance have you seen in their behavior or aggression levels?
