OK, I finally am taking pics and posting them. :) I know it's not much, but I'm working on getting plants and more fish soon. Let me know what you think.





Here's my molly by my bubbles.



Here's my two fish and snail.







And here's my guppy by my bubbles.

Yeah, they're not great. I'll try getting some more soon.

Looking good GuppyGirl. I like the black gravel - very effective looking.

Are you thinking of adding any live plants to the tank?

Thanks all. Yes Kate, I actually do want to get some live plants to help with algae control; I think the green will go nice with the current color scheme. I'm also going to get a background soon. I still have a way to go before this is how I want it. :mrgreen:

It's looking lovely, and with plants and a background it will look absolutely stunning! The fish look really healthy too :D

i no but petsmarts weird fish was tring to breed i think there fish are nuts :shock: !
Which fish were you talking about?
Mollies can interbreed with their own species: velifera, salvatoris, latipinna and spheneops.
Platies can interbreed with swordtails resulting to the fry which is Xiphophorus variatus.
Guppies can interbreed with Endler's Livebearers. Hence we do not advise on mixing those fish that will readily interbreed.:)

How can you tell if my molly is female?
Very easy.:wink2: Males are generally smaller with pointed fin near their anus which is actually a gonopodium which deposits the sperms to the females' vent.
Female livebearers have triangular shaped fin near their anus.

Take note that this applies only to livebearers.
