The Black Bellied Limia should be kept in an aquarium with the temperature ranging from 72 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit, and a Ph of around 7.5-8.5.


Small guppy-type livebearer, very hardy; as they are not fancy bred like some of the other livebearers they make a better first fish than guppies.
They are an overall grey with a blue sheen and black bars running along the body. Both sexes look alike.
The only problem with these neat little fish is that they are difficult to find
