My name is Mackenzie and I am new(ish) to Livebearers.
I did have fancy guppies when I was a kid, but since getting back into the hobby as an adult, I've been keeping and breeding Betta fish.
As much as I love my Bettas, I was really missing having livebearers. When I started seriously doing some research, I knew that I wanted a fish that didn't require a heater, was peaceful (compared to Bettas, many are!), and that I would enjoy watching/owning/researching and potentially breeding.
I ended up going with Goodeids, Xenotoca doadrioi specifically. I have eight youngsters currently and I am enjoying watching them interact, and they are eating well. Some of the males (well, I assume they are male) have started to color up, and I am excited to work with them!
We will see how this all goes, but I have a feeling that I am hooked on Goodeids now...
I am looking forward to learning from this awesome community and hope that I won't ask too many stupid questions!
