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.

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
