New and different livebearer

Hey everyone,
Just found this guy at my local pet store and HAD to get one. It said it was a 'Golden Halfbeak' but it may go by another name.
Has anybody got these or had experience with them? Apparently they mostly stay on the surface of the tank and are very peaceful.
Id like to try and breed this one and watch them grow. Anyone know how to tell male from female?
Here is a couple of pictures of mine.

They do look really weird and cool. I think its awesome how they are only small and don't normally grow past 7.5cm long. Means i can have some in my tank

Cool yes, new no. Halfbeaks have been in the hobby for decades. Don't keep more than one male in a tank because males are aggressive towards eachother.They're best kept in pairs or one male to several females.
