Fin near the anus is triangular in shape.
Just a warning. Livebearers have a tendency to produce several dozens of fry in a few months so unless you can cope with that lot, chances are you'll have to leave nature to take its course and have most of the fry be eaten to their fellow tankmates. A female can produce several batches of fry in a single mating with a male.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
