New Guppies!

So I went to pick up a plant from Joraan and came home with a very pretty Snakeskin male and his little harem Plus some other plants he gave me to try. Super person to deal with I could have stayed for hours talking and learning from him but the ol' man was in the car,lol!
I put them in the 10 for now with the baby red bristlenoses. Not the greatest camera hope you can see him good he's very pretty.

he looks like a guppy endler hybrid. I'm pretty sure Joraan keeps guppies :O

I don't do livebearers usually so he'll be by himself with the girls. I was told he was bred from endler guppy cross. But he's a cutie I'm liking him.

I'm sure in a few months I'll have babies soooo...
Like I said I don't do livebearers. I've seen people talking about endlers. Are they a smaller version of a guppy type fish?

Endlers are separate species I believe. Very hard to get the "true" end let tho. They've been bred and mixed. But he's cool nonetheless. You'll have kids in no time. Lol!

Re: New Guppies!

They are about the same size maybe a tad smaller. The biggest difference is coloring and their fins.
Your guy is definitely a guppy/endler hybrid. And very pretty! I'm sure you will see some beautiful male offspring.

Let me put some light on this..It took me 3.5 yrs to develop this strains just for fun not for business purpose. These are guppyXendler hybrid.Most of the time fries are 99% like the pictured male, some with red color instead of yellow and common female...once in a while you get Solid Endler male fry.

Cheers!!!

Yes and they are beautiful, I love him. Watched him last night, not afraid of anything...there I go comparing him to a dog but he's just perfect as far as I'm concerned.
