ID please. #1
Does anyone have any idea what these guys are? Not brill pics as they are very fast. They are about 2inch head to tail, they also shine salmon pink and emerald green in the light.

Re: ID please. #4
I have uploaded then onto the gallery, bit stuck now cos I cant do what it says on the tutorial.

Yes they are fresh water fish, I think they are Guppies of somekind but Im confused as to whether they are male or female as they are really colourful but only have the smaller tails.

Something's not going right with your pics, they are not in the gallery ... have a read of the help article if you haven't seen it, and see if you can figure out what's amiss

http://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/modules/faq/index.php?cat_id=4#q10

Have you managed to upload them into the 'my images' bit of image manager?

hi they look like flame tailed endlers to me they are related to the guppy but are a wild type more natural then the guppy

Thanks for that, we are desperate for some more but have no idea where they were from originally. Were hoping they would breed but dont think they will.

Ta for the help folks
