I know, I love her rosy cheeks. :)

I am also going to get the second male, the auction has closed without a bid so I am contacting the seller to see if he has this fish still.

I am asking him for a female to match him, so I am curious what he has.

I wanted all yellow though, I want to try breeding them. I am actually in love with the deeper yellow boy, waiting for the seller to get back to me to see if he has a girl to match him.

But I do love those two girls though, but I read that it is easier for them to like each-other if they come from the same parents.

I hope (after I really do my homework) to be able to breed them and make lots of yellow babies, and yellows get paler with each generation so I have to get to more orange yellow than white yellow colors to start.

For now though, they are going into their new tank, I picked up a couple beautiful castles for the king and queen today. :) - I don't have the tank, I don't have the fish, but I am already decorating. LOL

I just spent three hours washing, dissinfecting and boiling all the toys, accessories, tools and equipment from guppy. Now I am ready for new fish... well, not quite, have to run a brand new cycle for the tank now. My fist timy cycling a fishless tank so wish me luck.

Thanks, ANHEL123 for that link, I would not have known how to do it without your help.

I hope whomever moves in there will like their new tank. I'll post a photo in a later.
