Hey when you get fry please offer some for sale in the classifieds here. A lot of folks don't have any experience with the wild type livebearers.

Poecilopsis gracilis are very nice looking fish easy to keep and breed a temperature of about 74 F suits them well. It is best to feed some live foods in their is diet. Quite a peaceful species it is best to have a few plants for cover. when adults are kept well fed they usually leave the young alone.

No I haven't got them yet.My original plan was to add them to an already established tank but was informed fry predation would be a problem So I'm having to set up a species tank for them I hope to have them within the next six weeks.
