Could someone ID this livebearer for me please. I think it is a Limia, but I am not sure which.
PS. I posted this on a US site, before I found here :-)

Great, thanks for the ID, my guess was melanogaster, but I had never seen them in the flesh before so I was unsure. I guess I am going to have a lot of them, I have five gravid females :-)

Welcome to the forum. They do look very much like melanogaster, you should have no problem breeding them and getting the fry as in my experience they do not eat their young. You will need to keep them quite warm to stop them from going skinny and dieing out, otherwise I don't think there is much of a secret to them.
