If it helps, I noticed that my swordtail girl spends a lot of time skulking too. I think they just do that by nature.

I think I have a few "special" fish too. I know a few of my bettas are. o.O

I'm glad Buttercup is hanging in there. I feel bad, I never named any of my swordtails. Oh, you'll be over the moon when you get swordtail fry. :) Angels might eat several but no one else should bother them.

Hi Yuuie! Mmm, blind date arranged by sister. What could go wrong? ;)

Bekah, it'd actually be best to leave the fry in the big tank so you don't stunt their growth. Just put several clumps of java moss around and they'll hide until they're big enough that the angels don't regard them as food.

Yeah, it is. Blocks light to the plants too. Trust me, even if the angels eat a few you'll probably have more than you know what to do with. A mature livebearer gal can pop out broods in the hundreds, although the most I've ever gotten were about 30 or so guppies.

Yuuie, Get out that little black dress, get your can of pepper spray and go for it!
