    That's supposedly what they look like when they're happy. Very purdy.

    Mine looks just like this (about 3 months old and 1.5 - 2 inches) but paler with less visible spots. Mines a more sandy-brown colour. My BN also has no bristles so I've made the assumption that it's a female :p Not sure what subspecies it is within the genus, though. I always thought it was pale when I got it because she was probably scared out of her wits but she never got any darker. :good:

    Well, only you know what your LFS stocks - why don't you go in store and write down some of the names of fish you like and ask on here afterwards? :good:

    I will tell anyone that Espeis are easily my favorite schooler. I want a hugeee school of them. They stay in a nice group and are very active.

    Can you be more specific as to what kind of Corys & what kind of Tetras? Rule of thumb is you should have at least 6 of each of those two fish for sure. I'd plan on getting 4 more of whatever Cory you have first & foremost.

    just to be more specific i have:

    1 mickey mouse platy(female)
    4 red platys(1 male 3 females)
    2 black mollies(1 sailfin male and 1 normal female)
    3 normal platnium mollies(females)
    5 tetras(which i cant find the species of)
    2 albino cory cats(plan on 2 or 4 more first)

    the tetras are green or gold(im kind of colour blind) with small black spots all over them.

    here is a quick picture i took, the best i could get as they NEVER stay still.

    That's not a tetra that's a Leopard Danio.
