    Kinda reminds me of a platychila peristome, just the peristome, but just the color... Definitely not a hybrid with platy though.

    Sorry, more guppy crap...

    NEW GREENHOUSE VIDEO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzVo48GNwac

    I ordered Thai Black Moscows on aquabid. The females have long dorsal fins that stretch all the way back to their tail. So do the males. The males are 100% black. Getting the trio soon, hopefully by Freitag. Here's a picture of the strain from the seller...



    So excited! This means I can use the babies from my other guppies to feed my neps and use the pure-bred babies to sell.

    I still wonder why your feeding your neps baby fish. If you really want to feed your plants why not use freeze-dried blood worms or if you want live food, crickets. I just feel that it's unessicary to use live fish.
    Good Growing!

    I'm not feeding them baby fish yet... But I may start. I explained this in chat a bit ago... The guppies I currently have are fairly nice, pure strains, however each and every one is from a different strain. When they have babies, I'll have a mix of mutts. After three-four months, I'll start culling, which is where the Nepenthes come in. What I'm left with will be the nicer mutts. The nicer mutts will start breeding and I will remove the parents to reduce inbreeding. The babies of those will be culled after three-four months, which is where the Nepenthes come in again. The process will be repeated until I have a strain of fish containing genes from all of the current guppies I have.

    The guppies I just ordered aren't plant food. Those are pure-bred, show-quality guppies that will be selectively bred and sold back on aquabid. The only ones of those that would become nep food are the deformed ones. So the Nepenthes are my way of culling, and they will benefit from it!

    I actually catch bugs around my property and feed them to my neps. Anything from 2" spiders to ants to giant crane flies. Since my neps are outside, each pitchers catches a lot of bugs. I have some nep pitchers filled with hundreds and hundreds of ants, for real, hundreds.
