My Livebearers

I now have five Gold Twin-bar Platys and more on the way! 
"Kathrine Tinka" is the biggest Platy I have ever seen.  Named after a vampire in "The Vampire Diaries", and after a character in "Shake it up", second name was from a little girl I know.  Unfortunately Kathrine died.

"Lexi" was also named after a vampire in "The Vampire Diaries".  She too died.

"Tara" was named after the main character from "Dance Academy".  She also died, hopefully no more will die anytime soon.  Died.

"Elena" may have been the platy who gave birth to the first surviving baby! Elena is my favorite character from "The Vampire Diaries".  Died.

"Rosalie" at first her name was Rosie, but then so I could use a name off of my fish naming list (don't you have one? :)) so her name become Rosalie after a vampire from "Twilight".  Last survivor of my original Platys!

"Scarlet" is the same size as Rosalie.  Was being named "Charlotte" but she's orange, and red so I changed Charlotte, to Scarlet.  Close enough right?  Died.

"Toph" was the smallest fish I've ever owned! Named after a blind earth/metal bender in "Avatar: The Last Airbender" at a friend's request.  Died.

"Rebekah" is a blue mickey mouse platy, I was planning on getting 3 of these, but when I went to the pet store they had four different color so I got one of each! Named after a vampire in "The Vampire Diaries".

"Annabelle" is a white mickey mouse platy.  She's very small, and shy.  Named after a vampire in "The Vampire Diaries".

"Fox" is an orange mickey mouse platy.  She is actually the exact same coloring as Elijah was, except instead of bars on her tail she has the mickey mouse pattern! She is named after the dubstep artist "Foxes".

"Elijah Weston" was my first male platy.  He is around the same size as Lexi, and Tara.  He has red fins, which I am in love with! :) Named after a vampire in "The Vampire Diaries", and a vampire in "The Skeleton Crew". (which is an awesome web-comic, just btw...) Died.

"Kol" is a red mickey mouse platy.  My only male as of May 2013.  Named after a vampire in "The Vampire Diaries".

"Java" is the first surviving baby platy I've had so far! I don't know who it's mother is, how old it is, or whether it's a girl or boy.  I'm not sure where it is anymore, caught it in a trap, and it disappeared.  Found a second baby, but lost that one too.  I don't know what happened to Java!

"Yuki" is a large dark grey Guppy.  Probably the mother of a few of my other Guppies.  Possible Velvet's as Velvet is closest to her in coloring, though that doesn't really mean anything.  Named after the main character in the Manga series "Vampire Knight".

"Amberlyn" is also a very large Guppy, but she has a yellow tail with black spots! I think she is Pearl's mother, again this is because of coloring, but she's spotted, so it's different than Yuki, and Velvet both being very dark.  A vampire name I found online by googling "vampire names" that I happened to like.

"Velvet" is a normal(?) sized half black Guppy.  Possibly Yuki's daughter, based on colors.  They came from the same place, so the smaller ones are most likely the larger ones children! See above for where her name came from.

"Alice" is a smallish yellow Guppy.  Still pretty young, maybe a few months old.  So when I went to my friend's house and saw her baby Guppies Alice, Ruka, and Pearl may have been those babies! Alice is the name of one of the vampires in "Twilight".

"Ruka" is a small gold Guppy.  A little younger than Alice I think, either younger or just smaller.  Ruka is one of the characters in the "Vampire Knight" Manga.

"Pearl" is a baby Guppy with black spots on her tail.  Which is why I think that Amberlyn is her mother.  Pearl is the name of a vampire in "The Vampire Diaries", but did I have to say that it was the name of a vampire?

"Emmett Flare" was the biggest of my males, and possibly the other two's Dad! He was a bright red, just like his sons(?). Named after a vampire from "Twilight" (my favorite vampire!!) and by someone's request.  Sadly Emmett died of SBD (Swim bladder disease) a few weeks after I got him.

"Damon" is the same size as Stefan.  Bright red, with black lining his tail.  He and Stefan will play in the filter bubbles together! It's fun to watch, and guppies are officially one of my favorite types of fish! Named after a vampire (shh...) in "The Vampire Diaries".  

"Stefan" is the same size as Damon.  Bright red, with brown in a thick line around his tail.  When I first put Elijah in the tank Stefan would swim over and watch Eli until Eli chased him away.  Named after a vampire in "The Vampire Diaries".

"Finn" is close to the size of Stefan, and Damon, but a little bigger.  He is a double tail! His tail is black, and red/orange, and his body is half black, while his top fin is a light blue.  Named after a vampire in "The Vampire Diaries".

"Niklaus" is the same size of Stefan, and Damon.  He is red/orange with some black mixed in on his tail.  He is named after the original Finn's brother in "The Vampire Diaries".

Those are all my livebearers right now, and I have more on the way! May 2013 - No guppies right now, and only 5 platys.  Starting a selective breeding project ASAP!

Quick facts:
Bettas need at LEAST 3.5 Gallons of water, a filter, a heater, lights, and a thermometer!
Fish are not as easy to keep as most people think.
Guppies are also called "Millions Fish" because they have so many babies!
Bettas, and some other fish have an organ called the "Labyrinth" which allows them to breathe air.

What do you think about that?
