Guppy/Endler Hybrids?!

I've currently got roughly 2 month old guppy fry in my tank and obviously their at the age for showing colours.
I'll just give info on mum and dad, dad has silvery tiger stripes body, with a yellow tail with black polka dots. Mum was black with a grey head and yellow tail with black polka dots.
I also have 2 male endlers in my tank.
One of the guppy fry, (a male) Has come out with very strong black colouring on body, yellow tail with black polka dots, a white fin on the top, and strangely enough a BRIGHT orange endler like stripe just above the fins on the side.
Is this possible that after getting pregnant from my guppy, the endler has got her and fathered a fry?
I must say, he is beautiful, why do LFS sell them as feeder fish the hybrids?
I would post a picture, but he is still quite small and does not stay still at all!
I'll also add, i have got 9 fry alltogether, most of them are coming out alot like mums colours, 1-2 like dad, and then theirs this one :)

Well, that is neat! Do post a picture when the fry gets big enough. I would really be interested in seeing it.

I managed to get pictures of the little dude :)

If you look at the 2nd picture, he is the 3rd fish down, you can see how different he is from his brothers and sisters in it :)
Is he definatly an endler/guppy?
Im still very confused to how this happened!!!
Also ignore the cloudy water, I am currently using an anti parasite treatment for anchor worm and had to remove the media from my filter. So it looks shoddy right now.

Its because hes half guppy, got the guppy colours and endler patches. My endlers are clear, blue, green silver and mainly orange haha.
He is unique, and i must say cross breeds look better than the original.

It is very possible and I do like the looks of it, but they a normally not breed on purpose from what I understand because people want to keep the endler lines pure and because the off spring are fertile. Neat little fellow though.

More are coming out with male endler colours!!! Looks like i have a whole batch of them... does this mean they are now infertile? I hope so i dont fancy dealing with overbreeding issues.
