Then again, arent the monties also mountain swordtails? Maybe a bit lower, which would mean i'd have to bring them all in for the winter. Now for an excuse to get rid of a few feeder goldfish...
Are you talking about M. concolor? I've seen auctions from one guy running on Ebay. They look pretty much like dull normals in his pic though.
BTW, for the monties, have you evered given them wafers of any sort? They steal sera catfish chips from my BN pleco(s), and really enjoy them. Best of all, the female has enough time to come out and start stuffing her face(unlike with pellets, which dissapear quickly). I'm thinking Hikari sinking or algae wafers would fit this bill perfectly and allow the pair to eat at night. Im hoping they will breed soon.
Spec: Fairy shrimp and Daphnia are 2 different organisms. The same thing happened to me in my ponds.
Thanks for the info!
