Just wanted to update as well.
I have had these fish for a few years now and they keep amaze me.
I made 2 short videos showing the difference in color between morning and afternoon
In the morning video I couldn´t prevent lots of reflections, but if you can look past those, you see the males in a very dark grey/green with something close to wine red in the tail area.
In the afternoon video they show a brighter more yellow´ish appearance.

Another update, I am currently working on a bigger tank for the Chilatherina. This 4´ tank at about 55 gallons really became a bit small, so now they will get a 6´ 100 gallon tank all for themselves. I wish to keep 7 males and 8 females in that tank and leave it at that.
At the time I made this photo, back in June 2011 I think it was I was already impressed by the almost 5" size and the deep bodied males. They added about a full 1" in TL and about half that in height. Guess there´s nothing to it but take a weekends time and make new photo´again
