A pair of sunset platys had been purchased in September 2017, One of the sunset platys died soon afterwards while the second one survived.
However in december 2017, the second sunset platy was also found floating at the top of the water in the fish bowl due to unknown reasons
After some time, the fish had disappeared and the water will have to be cleaned.
The sunset platy was kept with goldfish, which continue to survive
So clearly platys, especially sunset platys are not very tough fish, suitable for living in fish bowl,as they die quickly

In Goa it is becoming extremely difficult to get proper fish food, sometimes it is being stolen also. Only granule type fish food is available which is not suitable for smaller fish like guppies. So till fish food is easily available, it is better to focus on growing plants for which less resources are required
It is observed that the price of fish greatly varies from store to store. In some stores, they are keeping the price of the fish almost the same for a year or more, in other stores, the price of the fish varies weekly depending on the stock of fish available.
Most of the smaller fish sellers are keeping the price of their fish like goldfish, tetras, clownfish, angel fish almost the same at Rs 50 a pair. However larger pet stores, which are mainly selling dog food, are charging more money and their prices will vary.
For example a month ago, the price of platys at a store was Rs 50 a pair, and now the prices of the platys increased to Rs 80 a pair. So it is advisable to purchase the fish when they are cheap
