Micropoeillia picta 'red'

group of three young males. $15

picta require hard, warm water (28c)
Small groups of males are companionable in small tanks and will school. Calm. A good choice for the office or nano tank.
Small, 3.5cm/ 1.5 inch. Don't mix with aggressive fish. They prefer mild to no current.

pick up in Port Coquitlam or at New West/Coquitlam skytrain stations.

No, these are a small livebearer from Venezuela. The red is a fixed mutation that happens in about 10 per cent of the population. Some times called swamp guppy, it's not closely related to guppies and can't interbreed with them.
