I wouldn't get more than five or six platies and that's if it's your only species. You could get more of the tetras, though. Either way, remember to cycle the aquarium first and stock slowly .

You could always do a mix like maybe four platies and five neon tetras, too .

Part of how much you can stock in your tank is what kind of filter you have and whether or not you have live plants.
