    So excited! Just happened to have to go into the city for a training package, and had time to go to Big Als after. They had gold lyretail killies!!! I was looking for an orange/yellow fish for some contrast in my tank, and had picked out a gold lyre tail molly - but then I saw these killies. I've never seen them here before and the molly got dropped off the list like a hot potato, let me tell you. Unfortunately they didn't have any females. I bought some elodea, and I have some floating plants, so hopefully they will be happy in their new digs.

    And before you ask, no pics, as they are still acclimating!

    LOL, I miss Big Als. Which one did you go to ?

    Although I am not asking for pics, I am however looking forward to seeing some pics when they (and you) have a chance to get some posted

    Congrats on the nice find
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    the one in Barrie...I had some credit from when I sold my stock back to them for the move north, so the fish, some cherry shrimp, and the elodea only cost me 7 bucks.

    Try going back in a few days and ask someone else if there isnt any females hiding somewhere. My experince is that they often are kept in another tank and hidden away due to their duller nature. Not all staff allways know what they are. They breed easily so it is well worth getting some females if it turns out to be possible.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    hmm I never thought of that. I don't think they have any other tanks out back or anything but never thought to ask.

    Maybe not in the back but in my experince they often keep females and duller fish on the bottom row of tanks. Basically at shoe level which makes them hard to find. Thats where they used to hide a lot of the fish I like but that dont sell very well, such as jaguar cichlids.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.
