Wonderful videos indeed, thanks for posting.

However the sailfin molly is Poecilia velifera in my view.

Your videos are great. Most enjoyable to watch. What camera were you using, if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks Jim, I was using a Nikon Coolpix AW110, a very good camera for the money it cost, especially since it has dropped price in the last year. I fully recommend it.

Thanks Rico, I think you are right with the observation, I will get that changed soon. I wish they were available to keep in the hobby, such a beautiful fish!

I am glad you all liked the video, there is a few other videos on my channel from Mexico and I have some more I need to upload!

Regards
Dave

Yes, I wish that as well. From time to time they are available, but they have been largely replaced by all those ugly hybrids and line-bred forms which look like plastic rather than living creatures. Genuine pet shops have their tanks full of those monstrosities, but usually not a single natural form (except - whith much luck - Green Swordtails).

Another fish I wish was available in the hobby from Cenote Cristalino, the Gambusia yucatana.

Also in the video you can see Rocio octofasciata and Rhamdia guatemalensis.

Hope you enjoy the footage.
