confused platy?

Postby jennifer o » Thu May 24, 2012 1:08 pm

so this is a bit of a weird one to me ....

had my 200l set up for about 7 months now and amoungst many of the fish i have 5 male platys in there ( i have females in a nother tank)

there is a male platy who has constantly followed one of the other males about since the day they matured ( ive had them since fry )

he never leaves his side, and when he does lose sight of the other male, he swims frantically and fights other males until he finds his favourite lol.

any other male that approaches when they are together, he chases off.

no please dont tell me if the other fish is female because hes not and i know how to sex platys lol.

im wondering could he be gay? confused that the other fish is female?

bit worried as to what to do if his buddy dies as he will go nuts attacking the other males if he kind find him .

just thought id post this as never seen this behaviour or heard about it before
200l tank - 6 black phantom tetras, 1 golden chinese algae eaters, 2 pleco, 5 harlequin rasboras, 5 platys, 2 silver mollies, 3 panda corys

80l tank - 3 platys, 1 guppy, 4 neon tetras, 2 red honey gouramis

Sounds like a gay fish!

I heard they have gay penguins at a zoo in Germany,so why not fish.
