Got this fish today. Is this Splendida Australis? He's the second one down in third pic, and bottom fish on second pic. Also, can anyone sex this fish? It's nearly 3" long.

So I am going to guess Melanotaenia Splendida Splendida. With out knowing more info, that is just an educated guess. My gut tells me it's a Splendida X ? cross. Very few Splendida pure stock left around. Especially from LFS. They get their stock from wholesalers, who get it from Fla. fish farms or from the far east.
Best I can do kiddo!!
Hope that helps!
