    Breeding>>it's more like how do you STOP them from breeding.
    Ratio>>with just about every livebearing fish you want a 1 male to 3-4 female ratio,
    Coverage>>plants don't matter in the least when it comes to breeding and with endlers you really don't have to worry about protecting the fry...they don't seem to eat them (unlike swordtails, platys, etc).
    if you really want plants go with any bushy type plant...like java moss, wisteria, etc.

    big wig of the endler world, and as far as what Anthony has..I'm not sure if he even has any endlers left (know he went over to swordtails).
    Pm him and he'll let you know if he has any and would be better at explaining who adrian is.

    that was last year, I'd simply pm him and see if he even still has them BEFORE you go buying/setting up a tank for them (but then again, I'm sure you can get them elsewhere too).

    They ARE pretty fish (especially the males). I had them for a while and their very active which is nice ;)

    I have the wild strain also, but depending on where you are at if they would be shipped safely or not. This time of year I don't ship to many fish unless its express shipping because of the cold.
