keeping poecilia chica

poecilia chica i first kept this bonny little fish in 1992 and for some reason i could never get much fry and the ones i did get i could never get good size on them and the population died out it was not until about  2 years later that i had the chance of getting some good stock and then it was easy to get a good amount of fry and good size

the way that i did it was a 24*12*12 inch tank  with java fern, Indian fern, java moss with the temp 24c and ph 7 feeding 4 times a day with just flake food and i had plenty of fry to swap and give away

this is a nice little fish which is worth getting but remember not to keep with other poecilia species
