I know!! I would not be me if I just sold to sold. I have a SINGLE fish that is just not looking right. I am sorry to frustrate everyone, but what if that single fish has something and then I sell the others and you all end up with some issue. I have to be a pain with this one. I am just not confident yet!!! They are eating, active, fat, and BEAUTIFUL. I PROMISE it will be worth the wait

I know that I understand and am very glad Rachel is like she is about them.

Loving the Repashy Foods may have to order some more bags to have on hand. I think I found the perfect supplement to go with all the frozens I feed.

What's the difference between your Sakura and PFRs? I know the PFRs are higher grade, but what does that mean in terms of appearance?

man i wish I wouldn't have broken my stupid flash.

The PFR are more opaque and a brighter red. The females are completely solid. In Sakura, there is occasionally a bit of mottling, despite a nice vivid coloration.

Iwill see if I can set up some clip lamps tomorrow to get some pics fro people.

Pics would be great if you can. Do both kinds have the "racing stripe"? And do you notice a difference in fertility/hardiness ie do PFRs have fewer berries or higher mortality/sensitivity?

I don't think that the PFR or Fire Reds that I have (I have both types from a total of three different sources) come from the same source as Msjinkzd but I have not noticed any difference in sensitivity among my PFR or fire reds compared to regular cherries or other neos.

Rachel might have enough experience keeping them in species specific tanks under the same conditions to have more detailed info on the subject but I can definitely say that if you get the PFRs the odds of you having breeding problems related to the specific strain of cherry are very slim.

Get the ones that look best to you and you will wind up happy with the purchase, IMO.
