All but my fry are in the member photo's. Fry are too small & they don't have color yet, it'll be awhile but you can bet as soon as there big enough I'll post pics. Newbe's are parve, flame, dority, & the kids that are going to stay in my 14 gal are the celebe's. I can't tell who's who's yet cuz there too young to show any color. The only one's I know are the celebe's & that's cuz there already showing a little color. Here's a pic for ya. These arn't my celebe's they are the parents of the 4 fry I have now. I took this pic for the breeder friend of mine. Not the best pic but you can see what they look like.

Here's a pic of all three. I tried to get then individually, but they kept moving and I lost track of which one I'd taken a pic ...

Sharon, the 3 in your pic are all male bows. Are those madagascar bows I see also in this pic??? Here a pic of what a typical female bow will look like shape wise. Some females have color such as my lacustris the males just have way better color than the females. This is the typical shape of a female bow. Her dorsal fin does not over lap her soft dorsal fin.

Thanks Sue ...I thought that may be the case. The other Rainbows in the tank were listed as just Australian Rainbows, and these were listed as Splendida Rainbows. I did some reading but just got more confused...I'm really bad at IDing fish...

Glad to be of help Sharon. I love the bows as everybody knows. Ya might consider getting a female for those males if ya have room. There color is quite a bit better when in the spawning mode which is all the time when there are females in the tank.
