So I was at the store I used to work at, and I always net my own fish when I go in, and while getting feeders for my hungry hungry hippo (Jaguar), this little dude caught my eye and I took him. This is probably an easy one, but I’m just not familiar with it.

Heterandia formosa would be my guess. One of the smallest livebearers in the aquarium trade. Native to the south east US coastal plains

If I see any, she was the only one in there. I put her with my Bolivian Ram!

10 for $20, not a bad deal


I always wanted them but the water from the tap is ultra soft here.

As far as I’ve read, they’re not picky about water conditions. Or were you talking about Bolivian Rams?

I meant the live bearer. I know they are adaptable, but i would rather create a Biotope like style also simulating the naturally occurring water parameters.

You could always easily increase the alkalinity by adding minerals!
