Re: What kind of Platy's do you think these are?

Yes, your fish are of the "Maculatus" form. You can tell by the stocky body and also the shape and position of the dorsal fin.
Wag can and has been put on Fancy Variatus, so don't base whether a strain is "Maculatus" or "Variatus" on the Wagtail pattern.
**These fish probably do have "Variatus" in them (The Red caudal peduncle probably came from Variatus). But they have been bred back mostly to Maculatus and I would call them Fancy Maculatus.
