Question will they be bigger?

i bought a regular fancy guppy female(her tail looks plain blue) and she bred with my pure endlers male.
will the babies be bigger than the tiny endlers male?

Sorry I did not get back to you on this sooner went on vacation. Hybrid endlers are from reg. female guppies and endler males. The offspring that came from mine I only had 1 male that came out guppy size the rest of the male born were a smaller size like endlers.I posted a picture of the one that came out guppy size it has a bigger tail and is metalic black and blue. Good luck! I have some really pretty endler hybrids posted a picture for you. I'm working on a Glass belly male guppy and my ribbon fin guppy females to produce more Glass Belly guppies. You can look on u-tube to see what they look like sort of rare and creepy looking but I like them. I also posted a picture of the male to show you the see thu look. Hope mine have babies soon.

The female that you bought at the pet or fish store may be pregnate already from other males as they can store sperm for several drops without males around. In most cases the ones from the pet store are already pregnate.You may have to wait 3-6 months before she produces endler/hybrid offspring. I seperate all my endler/hybrid offspring when they are able to sex so that I know they are virgin females and keep them seperate without males in their own tank.
