I hadn’t bought any fish when it was given to me, I hadn’t even mentioned a possibility of getting platys at that point. I had told them my plants had melted even though I thought it was my fault for not having the light on for long enough. They gave me replacement plants along with the aquavitro.
Odd though as plants melting is quite normal when they are first put in the tank, you just wait for new leaves to grow.
