if ur worried about this, its hard to find "Pure" pure endlers. almost all endlers will be hybrid to a certain extent unless awarded by ALA (american livebearer's association). they have awarded many people who have performed an excellent line breeding/selective breeding techniques. that is the closest thing you can get to PURE endlers.

Ive been seeing alot of things about people with the wild endlers, but so far none in my area

$25 for 10 fish, free shipping. Hows that?
I just sent out two boxes, and only one fish didn't make it.. (out of a total of 45 going out)
I have two boxes to ship monday, and then if you order I can do it all at once and be all out for a while.
Here's a pic one of them sent me-

(Yes, they wanted guppy females and endler males... This way you can see the endler's probably offspring coloration)


There's really only one endler in that photo, and it's right in the middle. see it?

They are hybrids, line bred to develop wild-type coloration :/

Good for practicing though... True wild-caught endlers will run a pretty penny... close to 20-30 per fish...

Here's the only place I know to find 100% certified class N endlers-

Ya i can kinda see it lol, i have one male guppy/endler cross, but i wanted to see if i can breed out the guppy into pure endler, and i was thinking that maybe that would still keep some of the traits it has of a guppy if it does have any.. I just sent my dad a picture of an endler and a message asking if he can buy them for me, i hope he gets back soon to me(I dont live with him, i live with my mom)

Dunno if you noticed, I realised I didn't want to sell my true forms since I only have a couple males.. I edited my post. The ones for sale sure look like wild-type though.
