Thumbs up

First thing I thought of when I saw them was a nebula. I'd call them "Nebula Tail" guppies

I must agree with Nebula, i like that name, i think mabey like Dress (really simple idea)? it does look like they are almost wearing a dress if you look at the last picture

Nebula tail guppies. Or maybe galaxy tail... But I think nebula is a good name.

My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.

there are already "galaxy" strain guppies so i want to stay away from that cause dont want them confused but im really leaning in the direction of blue nebula. cause if i can keep the rainbow tail with spots but change body color i could have different nebula colors lol. and the line is really starting to breed well i have found 3 more males like the 2 in the pics so they are starting to finally breed true and it only took 2 years lol
