    The cherry shrimp are from NavyScuba! LOVE the colors on these guys!

    The tiger shrimp are from Harpua! These guys are so fun! They will crawl up your hand when you are moving stuff around in the tank.

    The swords were ordered on Aquabid. I have never bred swords, although I have kept several strains and I really want to.

    Thanks folks:D

    The swords are green spotted-a color strain of the domestic swordtail-Xiphophorus helleri.

    Looks like they have some helleri in them, if not pure helleri.

    You got it! Don't mix them with the mountain swords, though:D

    We are smart women. I am sure between the two of us, we can remember:;hf
