A very hardy goodeid, the
bright yellow tail and overall blue/green sheen distinguishes
population. Fairly prolific, females should be isolated to drop
their fry, which are then raised
separately until large enough to fend for themselves.
A number of populations of this fish
exist in the hobby, and it is endangered
in the wild. This is one of the most attractive populations available.
5-15 smaller young (for a goodeid) are born after about 60 days
Young should be born and raised away from the adults as they will feed
on their fry.
