Now the sad thing is, I do photography for money, and yet i haven't taken the time to figure shooting photos of my fish. Oh well.

These photos are alright, all shot with the hard flash on my camera. When the tank clears back up (for some reason going through a mini cycle even with old media) I'll sit down and try and figure it out. For now though everyone was out for once and I also got what i think is either my Mollies mating or fighting, I dont know :P

Here is the very pretty Butch, and Molly of some kind, all i know is his tail is awesome. He was flaring and so was the silver molly, for reasons i don't know.

Here is them going at it, what ever it is.

And now they have calmed down. Here is Butch playing around the skull

And the silver still nameless one looking at me to feed them.

Everyone seemed to like the loaches so here is another photo of two of em:

That is Spaz #1 and #2. We actually came up with a way to tell them apart; one has this row of dots on his back and the other doesn't. Josey isn't photogenic and runs from the camera. I can tell her by this weird kink she has in her ever since they spawned.

It surprised me the pleco was out and about, his name is Walter. I am starting to think it might be a female though. I can't really tell.

Little closer up of him/her. Wasn't in perfect focus but oh well.

Apparently got tired of me taking photos since he/she ran away at that point. Good view of its tail though :D

Honestly if you had wiped down the front of the tank first those would be POTM quality easily! Great shots cant wait to see more, you certainly have some talentthumbs2:

that molly is really impressive! makes me re-think my current stance on them

Thank you very much :D I didn't think about wiping down the glass at the time. All of the sudden while working on the new filter we got i saw the mollies doing what i now believe to be mating behavior. He was flaring and looked so awesome i dropped what i was doing and got the camera. I didn't think at the time to wipe down the glass.

EDIT: Oh and that orange one was the only one in the tank with those coloration's and that tail with a split top and bottom. When he was flaring you could also see a good bit of blue mixed in there on him. Having gone back to the LFS tonight to get the new filter honestly hes the best looking one out of there orange lyretails.

I would say it's male...I don't think the females have pronounced bristles. They would be sparce or not there at all...

Those are lyretail sailfin mollies( poecilia latipinna not poecilia velifera). Excellent pictures by the way.

Those are very nice shots of very pretty fish. thumbs2:

I think your plec may be a male looking at where the bristles are coming out along the top of the nose. :ssmile:

Thanks everyone :D I just got done putting in my last new plant and getting it all rearranged. Everyone in the tank seems happy, the mollies are playing in the middle and around the bubble wall, and the loaches are playing in and around the skull.

Its kinda sad seeing the first post in this thread reminds me of the pleco who died yesterday :( I am thinking of getting another one as the LFS has a whole tank of baby BN, but i don't know yet.

Anyways enjoy this pic of the tank as it is now :D
