    here's a few more pics. sorry that they aren't clearer/sharper pics. this set up is still a work in progress. plan on getting a few more plants (most likely fake...can't do live, don't have the "green thumb"), driftwood, mabe a few more fish.

    Oh it's cute buzz!
    kinda reminds me of a 10g that I did with the same walmart fluorescent caves, black background, and neon plastic plants with black mixed with flourescent gravel (came that way).

    Pretty guppies too!

    Is the half black a female? o.o; So hard to tell from the pic XD
    I had a similar set-up a while back myself. It's fun with all the trippy colors X3

    as far as i know, they all are males, if we end up with fry then we'll know that someone goofed. i tried to get better pics, but my 5yr old son got a hold of the camera and messed up all the settings somehow.
    the last time i had anything to do with guppies before now , i would get fry for a friend of ours and feed them to our oscars and jd.

    nah, I had little to no luck with them too. I blame my pH (very low).

    Nice,
    pretty snakeskins & I love your yellow one.
    If you like the yellows..you should check out the tequila sunrises (yellow with orange).

    dawn, the yellow one is a tequila sunrise(or suppose to be), the flash of the camera washes out some of the color(s). the first pic of my second post is a better pic of it. we got 5 total guppies in there now: 2 are fancy guppies, 1 turquoise guppy, 1 tequila sunrise, and the black and white i have no clue on.

    really, it looked ALL yellow? usually the tequilas have a vibrant orange around the fins.
    But I hear ya on the flash, it makes my discus look completely different...in person they are REALLY bright....when I use the flash it washes them out.

    we've got 2 more dead guppies that we're taking back to the lps this afternoon. had a tequila sunrise die eariler this week and found the turquoise guppy stuck to the filter intake this morning. i think were going to make this a community tank, got 3 mickey mouse platy, 1 redtailed black variatus, 1 starfire red glowfish in qt. changing out the gravel for pink crayola play sand (wife & kids idea). so we'll see what happens.
