No females yet. The store didn't have them, and said they never get them in.

Clemens hasn't met them yet,but will in a couple days. He's currently in a bowl right next to the tank while his tail fin is healing. Woke up yesterday morning and it was all tattered and split. =/ No idea why.

:3 Thanks. The blue was nice,butafter having so much blue for so long, I got sick of it.

I've got plants in it now (more than just the banana I had before),I believe the bottom-most tank pics have 'em. I bought some microswords,some kind of anubias (it was in the tubes,all it said was assorted anubias =/),and some pennywort. Said pennywort is now mostly uprooted and floating about,due to one of my endler's dying this afternoon.Poor little guy had been spending a lot of time on the bottom when I put him in,but I was keeping an eye on him. And apparently his body decided to rest in the pennywort circle I made,hence it being all uprooted. I'll replant it tomorrow/in a few days when I add in Clemens.

Wow, I'm totally digging that arch way!! Love little Cobra Endlers <3

A teeny suggesting for your next set of pics: The IMG code LOL

Thanks! I had my eye on it for months. I'm checking a couple more stores tomorrow after class, and hopefully one of them has female endlers. I honestly can't wait to be up to my eyeballs in those little guys.

LOL I would have just posted the actual pic and not the links, but I was a little short on time,and that was faster. xP

Where'd you get it at? Maybe I can get one.... LOL

Cobra Endlers are Guppy/Endler hybrids. But they are mostly Endlers. The drops wont be so big, which is good for number management, but kind of a pain if you're a breeder lol Hope you find some females!

Haha, it was kinda funny, me trying to keep track of which links I opened XD I gave up and did a couple off the top and couple off the bottom XD I never saw a full tank shot, but it looks like it'll be awesome when the plants fill out =D

Lol I got my current ones at Petsmart.

The first two are already dead,found the second one on the filter this morning. D:< The one still surviving (I got as an exchange for the first one that died) seems to be doing okay,but I'm going to give it a few more days before putting Clemens in there.

More good news! At one of my favorite stores, they have quite a colony of Endlers that they're keeping in with their plants that look much healthier than the ones at Petsmart. Apparently they're letting them breed, and then selling them. The person I asked about their price said they weren't selling them currently,waiting for the numbers to increase,but to check back in a couple weeks. SO PUMPED.

I may end up returning the one I have if he doesn't pass/get eaten and just getting the healthy ones.

EDIT - Oops,thought you were talking about the Endlers. xD

The arch was at A.W. Browns,which is in East Longmeadow, Mass. They didn't have any more when I was there the other day looking for bubble eyes.

You horrible, person! I went to PetSmart today, and walked out with two Endlers :P They aren't Cobra's (like they were listed as), just normal, little, unfancy ones, that are usually sold as Feeder Guppies. I'm just happy not to have seen such treasures in the feeder tank! LOL

Yeah, I was talking about the arch way :P Too day theres no store like that here :/

That sucks about your little guys. I hope the new one does well for you!

So true. They're even prettier when bettas let them live! (Haven't had problems from the betta yet.Probably because he's still in the bowl being treated. He goes back in the tank tonight.)

Unfortunately, these Endlers seem to hate me. Found the last living one nose-down in the Micro-swords this morning. So, I'm off to return them and get my money back after rehearsal tonight. No more Endlers from Petsmart. I should have known by the condition of the goldfish that the rest of the fish probably weren't going to be in very good shape,but I figured I'd give 'em another chance. But it's okay,I've got another place I can go, and I'm checking out two more lfs's Friday or Saturday to see if they have them.

That really sucks. After just a few hours being in the QT tank (and also my baby shrimp tank lol), mine have already colored back up, and are terrorizing the shrimp LOL I would suggest knowing what day your PetSmart gets their fish shipment in, and giving the fish a few days to settle in before buying them. My PetSmart gets their fish in on fridays, and I always wait till at least monday to buy any fish.

But buying from LFSs is better, anyway, even if it costs more (unless of course, their fish suck). I try to buy from LFSs more that I do PetSmart and PetCo. Often times, their fish are 100x better.

I've noticed this too. The fish at the local PetCo have looked pretty good the past few times I've been there, but at the other local stores, they look worlds better (except for the Dave's Pet City we have in town. Their fish are both overpriced and are always sick. :c). The PetSmart we have near us just plain sucks when it comes to fish,especially goldfish. Every time I've been in there, almost all the goldies are sick. =/

I found out yesterday that one of the stores gets their fish on Tuesdays,the one that has the Endlers. And the employee I was talking too said that she'd talk to her boss about getting in some bubble eye goldies. So I'm definitely taking a trip out there again this weekend (Especially since they have the type of tortoise my sister wants). I was tempted to go tonight on the way home,but ma brought up the point about letting them settle a bit.

PetCo doesn't seem to have the variety of fish PetSmart tends to have, no. Well, this one PetCo that I don't go to because they suck does, but I don't go there, so that doesn't do me much good, does it? :P

Yeah, Pet Supermarket is slooooowly working its way north and west. Its mainly a Florida/southern-ish store, right now. They're about 50/50, good and bad, when it comes down to individual stores.
