Got some good pics tonight of these little buggers. I wish I could describe the under tone color the comes through when they hover and flutter their tales. I'll give it a go. It's like the oil on water rainbow but in pastel shades of pastel green and pink. It's amazing and couldn't be happier with buying this colony. Very healthy already popping kids out I'm going to post a few pics that help show the difference in color by light and angle

yes i have some of your cherries in with these guppies and as long as there is lots of ground cover and places to hide some babies will survive. the adults will be fine and start going to work on the algae but i would slow down feeding to encourage them to eat the algae not food. they will eat whatever is easiest

not much work only 1 tank to move, that's all I have up running right now a 20 high with my endlers. got a little harder though because I broke my kneecap on feb 11th and have to wear a brace that keeps my knee straight. Getting pretty bored been off work since then, see the dr on march 13th and hope I can get the brace off and go back to work. not really sure I want to put shrimp in with the guppies until I get into my new fish room ( not for 7 months ) if I figures it out correctly. I might put some blue rams in the 20 if I can find some that I like, no one that I know has any.

I have done some sorting and selecting with this group. I will take some photos of that down the road. I have gotten three absolutely beautiful orange versions but I'm storing them with a customer for the time being as for true blue grass I'm getting some fry that have a certain blue glow to them while others the normal grey guppy color and its a noticeable difference and these I'm separating also
