Long time no post. Unfortunately, school has gotten the best of my time lately. Here are some of the livebearers that are being kept at my home in Chicago that I was able to see during spring break.
Poecilia latipinna female- The sailfin molly
Xiphophorus mayae is an impressive swordtail species
Neoheterandria elegans, known as the Tiger Teddy is a little livebearer from Colombia that rarely reaches 1″ in length.
Limia sp. “tiger” is a fairly popular species in the trade
Limia nigrofasciata males have a distinct body shape with humped back, giving them the common name the Humpback Limia
Gambusia hurtadoi is a pretty Mosquitofish from Mexico. Here is a female.
