Thanks. I love them. The pics don't do them justice. They have better color than you can see in the pics. Took them with my phone.

Awesome. How many times has she had babies? I read that the first few times the might eat them.

In Pax's images which one is the male(?) and which one is the female?

Is the spot on the Caudal fin indicative of male or female.

I've read both ways are possible, my male has no spots on his caudal fin but I've heard they can. And Pax, my pair spawned once and ate the eggs, second time about 100 babies were swimming, only 5 of those are left, they are about an inch and a half long now, and the third spawn has 12 left alive and they are still fairly small

The females have the more red belly. I think that is the primary way to tell male from female

The first picture is female and the second one is a male. 100%sure on that! Also the spot is not an indicator at all. My one male has 3 spots on his. Just a difference between two different fish... The males dorsal fin extends to a point while the female blocks off...
