Mickey Mouse Fish! Our newest pets. Mickey Mouse Platy in various colors.
I wrote this post last year on my other blog, but thought I'd share it here as well for my Disney friends.
As many of you know I have a bit of a thing for Disney. Disney World is my favorite place in the whole world and I've been 6 times so far. Well the other day when I was out buying feeder fish for our pet turtle, I saw these fish that looked like they had hidden Mickey's on their tails. I just had to know what they were. I was so tickled to learn that they are literally called Mickey Mouse Platy. We now have 4 of them in our aquarium and they make me and all the kids that see them smile when we see those Mickey circles :) To learn more about this breed, care and where to find them, CLICK HERE. I purchased mine at my local Meijer, but have seen them listed at Petco and Pet Smart, so just ask.
UPDATE: We have also purchased Blue Mickey Mouse Platies and Yellow Mickey Mouse Platies!
