Platy “Coffee”

30. January 2012

This Platy is a very attractive sport. The body colour is plain blueish-white with sharp contrasting black spots. The eye shines in a beautiful blue. The intensity of the latter depends on the light.

This new Platy represents in all probability a close relative of the “Bleeding Heart Platy”, which is a descendent of the nowadays lost plain white “Ghost Platy”. Both existing sports, as well as the mentioned “Ghost” sport, are bred exclusively on the zoological species Xiphophorus maculatus.

For our customers: the fish has code 442153 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Lexicon: Xiphophorus: from ancient Greek, meaning „the one that bears a sword“. maculatus: Latin word for „spotted“
