Well not exactly outside but to a tub on my enclosed back porch. They are in with my guppies. The water is pretty cold, around 68 will probably go no lower than 65 because I put a heater in the tub until the temps stay up for the summer.
I would like to try to breed them. I have 3. I do not really know how to sex them but I have 2 which are always together. The 3rd is in the group off and on without problem, but there is definitely a pair formed for some reason.
Both are a pretty gold speckled on top and a chocolate brown on the bottom. At one time I thought they might be breeding, the one I thought was a male had a peach colored spot on the top of his head and along his sides. The other was very broad in the belly.
I was hoping that if this is a pair putting them outside now
