We are so fortunate. Their fish are unbelievably healthy, too. If I'm in PetSmart for some other reason, and look at their fish, it makes me a little sad for them. Some of them look like completely different species because the color is so drab. I will say though that overall the PetSmart fish look better than another pet store in the area, where there are often dead fish, and many sad and sick looking guys. :(

I do like oddballs, too. The two you mentioned are interesting looking - I'll have to read up more on them as well. Keep the suggestions coming!
I just revisited my fish spreadsheet, and I have the forktails listed as doing well in 6.5-7.5 pH.... I got my info from various sources, but can't remember where that one came from. *sigh*
This site has an even greater range - 6-8. FishProfiles.com - Pseudomugil furcatus
Argh, it can get so confusing to have such different info everywhere...
