Porthole Livebearer
 
Does any one have any info on caring for the Porthole Livebearer (Poecilopsis gracilis)? I'm strongly considering adding a small group but need more info first

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.

Absolutely,I'd only charge for the shippng.Always willing to promote wild types

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.
