Awesome addition to our little group. Great to have you here and can't wait to hear more stories about your fish keeping experiences.

I breed Endler's myself and they are not the same as guppies. However they can be hybridized with guppies so some people have endler's guppies. One of these days I will try to get some decent pictures of the little guys. The endler's actually get a lot smaller than guppies as well. Ancistra' may be able to get better pictures than me as she has a whole tank full of them as well.

What was it like to hatch the shark from an egg and what kind of shark was it? Sounds awesome.
