What are those other fish in there? They are like multicolored
The multi-coloured ones are male Endler's Livebearers. I started with two males and four females...and then they made many babies. I counted 5 adult males this morning, and a bunch more fry that are just starting to get their colours in.
Thanks - I specifically asked for variety, and that's what I got! :D

Thanks! I just started the second book, and Ygritte has been renamed Melisandre as a result. :p Any future girls who join the group will be Ygritte and Osha.
And thank you for your comment on my fish. :)

Sansa's colour just keeps on getting more and more gorgeous, but she simply will not stay still! I just have a lot of white blurs where I should have pictures of an irridescent blue-pink fairy-fish.

Thanks. :) I was re-doing my planted jar in front of my tank just now, and all of them came to the front of the tank to find out what I was up to. There was a bit of squabbling over who got to be where, but they sorted it in the end. I put my hands in the tank to trim some ludwigia, and they all came barging over to inspect my fingers, swim through them and generally get in my way. It's a delight to have girls as personable as they are beautiful.

I absolutely wish I could capture them on camera. All their colours are so much bolder and brighter than the camera shows, particularly Cersei! Arya is the exception - she's at the bottom of the pecking order most of the time (it keeps changing), and is usually pretty stress-stripey. When she does colour up, she has a very dull black body, but when she catches the light she has silver stripes on her tail, and the brightest silver eyes you ever saw.

Those are pretty neat.

I wish there was someplace else besides petco around here for females - not the greatest variety. The only one I picked that had real color turned out to not even be a female

I know what you mean. There is one shop this side of the city that stocks females (there are a couple on the north side, but hey, petrol), so I followed LBF's advice and went online. :)

Sucks about the gender-bender! :(

I love my Endlers. Very cute little guys.
