Not only that but Guppies, in a second he'll have a handful more...
but his sig line says he has larger tanks so maybe he would be moving extras out into a larger tank.
Because of all the plants you can get away with a bit more but it would be best if it was just a couple males in there.

No, that was just for show, there are only 4 fish i there now.
1 Male Tiger and 3 Females. Just wanted to make sure that the females were impregnated by the right male/s.
then they are moved back to the main tank to drop fry.

Sorry should have said that in Original post.

Did you update your sig line? I don't remember seeing that the community was a mix of Endler's and Guppies, I thought people weren't really supposed to mix those.
