Ross, I hope you don't mind, I've taken the liberty of reducing your image sizes to 600px width /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Oh, and for future reference, you can use the following URL to resize your pictures:

Seems to work pretty effectively! /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Welcome, Ruth! /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> Yeah, I'm fairly sure it's a Platy.. Matt will confirm when he gets on.

Bless it! /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

They're Symphysodon aequifasciatus - the Discus /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Stunning South American cichlids. Many claim they are particularly difficult to keep but they're so pretty!

Whooops, sorry about that discus profile; it's one of the unfinished ones /blush.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blush:" border="0" alt="blush.gif" /> Ahem, anyway yes definitely a platy, and a female one at that!

Ross I don't mean to be rude but the fins of your male fighter look a little strange. Is it one of the short-finned varieties?

Cake or death?

errrrrrrrmmmmmmm. i have no idea /blush.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blush:" border="0" alt="blush.gif" /> it was blue and ruth liked it /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> ruth says she thought the discus profile was okey tho. i will add some pics of the fighter. but i didnt know that there were different varieties. apparently the shop keeper had said that the fins would grow after a while.
