      Steve have you seen female guppies that couldn't get along? I have one female that is always picking on another female.

      Sorry, I saw you ask for an update but was on the way to Oregon the next day and forgot to respond!
      I'll get some pictures, but it's working really well. As many things, the set up gets neglected in the spring time, so
      I haven't tended to them like have been... but I did learn why more don't use plastic containers. Algae is a pain in the rear
      to try and remove... initially it slides right off, but over time it seems to get a foot hold (or maybe a different kind) that I
      can barely scrape off with my fingernail! It's imbedded. And plastic bows, so the tops that used to fit... not so much after a
      year. Just words to the wise.

      I have had a female brutalize another female, but only when moving one into another tank that has the female already established
      with a couple of males... any female I put in with her got the same treatment.
      I suspect I could have moved her into another tank with 20-30 females and she would have been fine... but where she had a "territory"
      in the other tank, nobody was allowed.

      Thanks for the info Steve. Do you own any Endlers Guppies? My SIL gave me a trio of Endlers / Blue Moscow guppies.

      Nope, no Endlers. You'll have show us when you get them!

      I'd like to move towards something red like your Red Gold strain, but I have to cull some of my
      Blue/Red Grass ones first...

      Steve, as you may remember, I closed down all of my aquariums and gave up on the guppies. My SIL is into raising Killifish. He has one tank of Yellow Snakeskin guppies he doesn't want. He has had them for one year and they seem to be healthy. He has a heavily planted tank and lots of babies make it and do well.
      He has offered them to me and I have decided to take them. I like the Red Gold Guppies better and may one day get some. I have two more tanks that are empty.
      Below is a pic of an Albino Yellow Snakeskin. Do you have any?

      You know what? So did I. Between work and everything it was more than I could do. But I have to say that the auto water replacement worked really well. I left it all in place but now
      the shelving is back to work holding eBay stuff. I have a couple of pairs still but they're the blue grass ones. I really thought I could cull the ones I didn't want with a local pet store but
      nobody wants them. I'm horrible at euthanizing so I just kept them and let them live out their little guppy lives.
      Now that I'm retired, who knows... I might start again. But I think I'd keep it on a much smaller scale. I don't want anything that ever resembles work.

      That yellow snakeskin is a beauty!

      Thanks Steve. My SIL brought them over tonight. They all look great. Mine are just to have as pets. My SIL sold his online, but has decided to sell Killifish.
