new intrest

so I, think ive come to a liking in swordtails and platys.
went to a aquarium meeting about livebearers back. in early august. and I guess just now I understand a little more and now I am intrested in keeping them.
there was this one swordtail I like, but dontremember it's name.
its body is yellow, with dots running horizontally along its body and a lime through them. they are blue,green in color. the sword is black around the edges and yellow in between.
ehe just a random post.
what other kind of fish has sparked your intrests?

Apistogramma.

I've always liked the looks of the fish, but now that I own a pair of Apistogramma Gibbiceps, I want to get so many more species! Elizabethae is on my list, as they are up for auction on Aquabid

Mmmmm not quite.

Gibbiceps is actually one of the least colorful Apistos (don't tell my male that!)

When you google search, look for the ones that have grey bodies and black checkerboard patterning. Mine has some blues and yellows to boot.
