These species are known as Mollies, they are one of the begginer fish. The do need some additional aquarium salt. They are a livebearer species so they give birth to live young. If you are planning to buy this certain species then I would suggest getting either all males or 2 females and 1 male. The males will fight over who gets to breed with the female, these guys are by far on of the easiest fish to breed. You put a female and a male together and you'll have fry in no time! They can be in Straight Freshwater, Brackish, or fully saltwater. Green mollies and short fin sphenops are extremely aggressive on females so you always need a 3 to 1 ratio otherwise the males will literally harrass them to death for sex. Keep them at 24*C or higher to keep away from disease.

Awwww man.

I can't believe I saw "Poecilia schenops" and thought it was about some exotic guppy-like livebearer when in fact it was the molly...7 years in this hobby and I don't know the molly's latin name.
