Not my favourite biscuits but for those that are into fancy guppies here are some of the new strains coming out of Germany. All pics courtesy of Aquariumglaser. Methinks the last one might be a P. wingei i.e. Endler?

Me too. Pretty colours, but completely devoid of character. Is there a more boring fish to keep behaviour wise? May provoke some interesting discussion? /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Platies!!! Most boring fish in the world! ...Ok, maybe not quite, but I wouldn't keep them again even if you paid me. I'm not mad keen on neons anymore either, maybe mine are broken but they don't seem to possess much in the way of character - love the colour, just wish they were slightly more fun!

WCMM are the way forward /wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" /> /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

Can hardly say my contribution was interesting but nevermind /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" /> /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

Never kept livebearers and have no interest in doing so. But for those that like them, very colourful.

LL - tetras are worth having if you've got a large enough shoal.

Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

I think goldfish make pretty dull and in the main unsuitable tank residents but fine in a pond. I also have a problem with Melanotaenia sp. rainbowfish but can't put my finger on exactly why... /wacko.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":wacko:" border="0" alt="wacko.gif" /> As for guppies and their relatives, I'll be joining you for a nice brew Graeme! /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

Ah a woman after my own heart, a collegue has 6 in his lab tank and they really do nothing apart from eat.

Gotta admit that I've fallen for my swordtail trio though. They were due to be rehomed this month from the pond but I now can't part with them and have made space in the 240L. I just hope the praecox can munch all the fry or I'm heading for trouble /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />

As a side note, how ya doing? Check your pm's

Rainbowfish are the best fish in the world (well apart from sids, they're awesome /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" /> ). I've told my praecox and bosemani what you've said, they aint happy. In fact they want to know your address and ( perhaps not unrelatedly) where fish can buy semtex from /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

Sorry Brendan they're just not my cup of char... /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> Weird thing is, it's just that particular genus. /wacko.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":wacko:" border="0" alt="wacko.gif" /> Any chance of seeing some pics of your pond?

So you're partial to a golossolepis?, you may yet be saved form the darkness (and my bosemani has lost the murderous glint in his eyes) /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
