they were blue with yellowish/gold fins (a see through kinda yellow if that makes sense)

some were lighter blue some bordered on black.

kinda reminded me a varitus platy

Looking forward to hearing what you choose.
They are best in a group. The males are one of the most beautiful aquarium fish, without a doubt. I now have a group of 10 (5m/5f) in my 90g, they were spawning yesterday, eggs flying everywhere. Males will periodically decide to race each other, usually two but sometimes a third joins in; side by side, down the length of the tank at incredible speeds, fins flared...quite the site. Their scales reflect every colour of the rainbow.

They really are beautiful aren't they Byron? Hope I will able to increase my numbers too. They do seem happy with the RBF but I do understand what the stress of having only two can do to them. Any species that needs the comfort of a group.

See I'm learning!! Would love to see them zooming down the tank!
