Always lots of fully colored adult pics. It's good to see a variety. Smile

Googled the adult Xiphophorus malinche as I had not heard of them before, stunningly patterned fish.

Thanks again.

Yes, I agree. Even these juvies are quite beautiful in person. The pictures don't do them justice. Collection point on these is Rio Claro. I'm anxiously waiting the first show of swords on them. And I am finding they are not super common fish but from what I read and studied about them they seemed to be nice fish ..small and easy going. They are housed in a 20G unheated tank with an assortment of plants. They seem pretty happy for now.

Thanks Tom. They are growing up a little faster now. Seems it takes them a while then they kinda take off size wise.

Thanks Betty!  Smile 

I have one other new livebearer group but I don't have pics of them yet. They are still settling in and doing some hide and seek. As soon as they get settled and want to come out and play I'll get some photos.

How cool. I have never had much luck with live bearers. They seem to last about a year for me unless grown in my own tank and then they seem to live a little longer. Probably because I watch them from fry until passing so I have them longer. Who knows how old they are when you buy them in stores. I STILL can't decide what to put in my planted 5 gallon in my office. Gahr.

More great photos! They make me want a fish room and a full-time aquarium employee to run it for me. Very Happy 'Cuz that's the only way I'm getting more tanks Sad

ShortyKiloGyrl, if you're interested in platies at all, I have several varieties available that were raised in my tanks. I have a good number of panda and sunburst juveniles and I'll have neon yellow variatus and blue wags in the coming months (they're pretty small at the moment).

Would they go well in a community tank or in the 5 gallon? I know my mom would probably like the blue wags. I wouldn't mind adding some color to one of my tanks that has 5 lf BN and one angelfish. The angel keeps to himself and doesn't bother anything except other angelfish. Smile

Thanks again pbmax for the photo comments and no problems on the platy sharing stuff.  Here's my community platy and danio tank (I think I might have posted this already somewhere else but not sure...anyway since pbmax brought them up...ShortyKiloGyrl I love my platies.  The colors on them are gorgeous and just pop with the danios and whitish rocks and green plants.  Super fun tank to just sit and watch.  Glad pbmax maybe has something to share as I think they make a pretty special community group.

Great platy shot! Those look similar to my neon yellow variatus. Smile I need to be better about pulling fry out of that tank... between the frogs and the adults, they don't last long.

Your tanks always look so clean.

I had some that looked like your bottom one mixed with a blue wag. It had the blue sheen to it with the variatus pattern. It was so pretty! I loved it. And then my pictus ate it..  Violent That was when he temporarily went in a small tank and set on the floor and my cat slapped at the sides of it and stalked/hunted him. lol I was so mad he ate 5 platy in 2 nights. Thank you ignorant fish store for saying "these make great community tank members"  Head Wall At one point I had over a hundred babies from those 5 platy. 3 females and 2 males. They were pumping out kids like crazy! lol. I would love to have some back in my tanks but I have only been able to find the plain jane ones of the mickey mouse and sunburst/sunset(?) platy. I hope when I get back from vacation the end of July I can definitely get some of his. It's nice he's closer to me Smile

Thanks one more time... lol! and cleanup = snails although in this tank I'm fighting green on the sand. I think I overfertilized. My snails work overtime in all my tanks. I just dropped a couple in my native tank in the garage and this morning there were "trails" on the rocks. Looked pretty cool as the rocks were white and algae was brown algae as its a new tank. Quite the designs  Laughing
