Wow, I would love to see your fish room! How many tanks do you have roughly? Also, do you separate the adults from the babies?

Always welcome to hop by...
I have over 80 tanks running actively.
Do I separate the babies from the adults? That will totally depend on the kind of livebearer. In most tanks, I'm able to leave those babies with the adults. Most of my livebearer species are used to different sizes of tank mates, which will lower down the chasing and at some point the fry won't be eaten anymore. But there are also species that just leave their fry alone by nature.
Also to answer the question, where do I leave all those offspring? Well in my case, there's so much interest for the fish I breed, that I don't have to worry about it. There's even a waiting list. Stores and serious breeders are interested in them. I also offer them at relevant vivaristic events. Fish are also shipped abroad. I also do shows. Even labs, zoos, conservatories and other research institutes can contact me for wild species of livebearers.

This afternoon, I've brought a good friend of mine a bag filled with a mix of guppies and endlers. She sick and got home recently. She's restarted keeping two fishtanks that had to be filled. Both tanks have been cycled first. She wanted to have colorful mix of them. So, I've scooped in a couple of tanks. And she asked for assasins snails. So, I've brought those as well.

Any pics of that Istanbul (lab) you posted? Been taking an interest in the feral/lab populations but can’t find anything on that.

I'll make some pics of them this weekend.

Pretty,

I assume the double dot on the body side and the single on the tail are a trait of these ones? Do like the head shots in pic 3 where all the colors but red disappear. Cool looking.

Edit: Just looked up that wild orange Cumana. Overlooked it the first time. Holy cow!
