What kind of guppy do I have?

Anybody know? Somebody gave me a few- one is male and has suddenly turned bright colors- they were very plain when I first got them. It's blue with black fins, paler on the body with spots on the caudal peduncle. I think it's very attractive, but never saw a guppy like this in any store or photo so wondering what it is. There's a few more photos in my window tank journal, but this is the clearest one (little fish doesn't stop moving)

I don't have an answer, but based on the blurry picture that's one cool looking fish!

I'd guess Blue Panda crossed with something else to get the spots

92% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

Yes- it does look like a blue panda (thanks)! except for the spots. I didn't want to breed guppies, but I'm hoping at least one of these females will drop fry and I can see if the males have the same color and markings again...

I got some slightly better photos today:

the spots are really just little tidy dots, look larger here because blurred from the motion
Tessa and KayakJimW like this.

Funny the spots are disappearing- now it only has two on the upper edge. Still pretty blue color, though.
