    $30 Frontosa

    Since this thread orginally ran, I ended up getting a red snook instead. I really enjoy this fish... hes color morphed since I have him. When I got him he was yellow and thought what a funny name for a yellow fish... "red" snook... but ... duh, hes red now. I would like to get a frontosa...

    Well, I searched, and the best thing I found is this.... that a dwarf platy is a manmade variant of Xiphophorus maculatus. (which, is well, obvious). The search for better more defined information continues...

    I havent heard that... Ill have to do some research. I know balloon mollies are a genetic defect... but cant find much on dwarf platys. Hence the post.

    Two LFS surprises

    I like when a employee waits for you to ask a question tho, instead of assuming you dont know what your doing... I dont like when they tell you something you already know without knowing your circumstance... like when you have MTS and pick out 2 fish that are totally different and they act like...

    New keeper- New tank- New fish

    yea... no, the store labled him albino since he was all white when we purchased him, but as he aged he changed color and is mostly orange now... disappointing to say the least. Its hard to get true albino anything here... except for my albino cory cat crew!

    Funny that you have convicts and oscars... we have an Oscar too... an Albino. Hes a pig. Not my fav fish, but my husband loves him, so thats all that matters. Hes still a pig!;:barf

    New keeper- New tank- New fish

    x She was fierce... but, is much calmer now, since we removed the male. She only spawned once, and most... if not all the fry survived! I had problems getting rid of them all. Even the LFS didnt want em.

    New keeper- New tank- New fish

    I seperated my pair of convicts. I have one in my 46g and 1 in my 125g. As I said earlier, they are amazing at reproduction and unless you have someone who wants or needs the fry you may have a problem on your hands. Maybe your LFS could take them for you... the fry are serious surviors as well...

    New keeper- New tank- New fish

    To minimize aggression provide a lot of driftwood or rockwork - and - provide as large a tank as possible (IMO I would put just 1 pair in a 20g, and a 20g long is even better). If you provide fast moving "target fish" (like danios or barbs) that will help keep the convicts from fighting against...

    Outlaw - Awsome idea. I do have the room, actually. I already have one of those huge rubbermaid storage bins under the stand that I keep extra fish decor and odds and ends in, so I can definately fit another one on the other side to dedicate to an emergency overflow. I think the one I have...
