New guppies and ottos

Got my self some new guppies and ottos the other day and the ottos are doing a great job of getting rid of the algae.

Also got a new trio of guppies (1M:2F) which puts me up to 3F in total.
The male is a red tuxedo.

One of my females has a tail fin which sits at an angle, not rounded like normal but doesn't go straight down either. Anybody seen any like this before?

I've seen guppies with that kind of tail before, I've had several myself. I have about 75 fry from one of them, I'm eager to find out if that trait is passed on to all fry, or if it is an abnormality.

Enjoy your new fish!

Got 3 of them and they are all a different size, its like little, middle and large =D.
They really do a good job at keeping algae at bay and don't bother about any other fish in the aquarium
