one thing though - you said you have what you thought were 5 female swords - do you know that the one with the long tail (the "sword" at the end and bottom of the tail) is a male? pretty soon you will probably have lots of baby swords :)

btw - lovely tank

Thank you! I have 2 males and 5 females. I keep hoping for babies, that's why I added some more plants, but haven't seem anything yet. I keep thinking that my guppy is going to go anyday but nothing! Keep your fingers crossed

mollies are easy to spot look at the moth mollies have very wide sqare lips more so than other popular livebearer they look like swords which can get to a good size
