Dwarf Red Coral Platy are beautiful small fish. It is a dwarf genetic mutation of the platy livebearer. It's solid, coral red coloration makes them an extremely stunning fish in any planted aquarium. They are a smaller fish and can grow to a a max size at about 1 inch which makes them perfect for a planted nano aquarium.
These fish are adult shrimp-safe, however, we recommend having sufficient plants or hiding spots for aquariums with both Dwarf Red Coral Platy and freshwater shrimp.
