Yup, thats what I assumed too.....female Molly and male Guppy.

A single male guppy Zombie? Eh, I think that'd be fine.

Those are my two dalmatian sailfins who reside in my 29 gallon. I have a black male balloon in my 10 gallon, and my girlfriend has a white female and orange male balloons in her tank. We also have another female dalmatian in another tank. We also have about 22 or so baby balloons in another tank. The ones in the pic are Salt and Pepper...but they are twice that size now...and their colors have changed significantly. The dark one is the male...and he is pretty much entirely black now, and the lighter one is the female...she has also gotten significantly darker, but still has plenty of white. I think I may use the other dalmatian that I have for my little experiment. The two in my avatar are a very definite pair...the other dalmatian I got originally so the male would leave the other female alone for a little bit and the pair just ganged up on her all the time and were beating the crap out of her so I had to seperate the new mollie from them. It's kinda cute really..they never leave each other's side.

We did have 15 additional balloon babies, but we're fast running out of tank space so they made a nice snack for my angels today. :)

Thanks so much for your replies everyone! Yes, they are really pretty fish... I was calling them 'gollies' :) but I like the name 'muppies' too.. LOL! I'm not sure who the parents are, but I would think the female would be the molly (those girls always seem to be pregnant!).

I've just had a good look at the fish and it seems that it's the male 'gollies' who have more of the beautiful colouring (similar to the male guppy I guess). The females look like regular mollies but with lots of rainbow sparklies on their bodies.

They really are a lovely (if accidental) addition to the tank. They all seem happy and healthy, but I guess time will tell on their actual health and longevity.

Thanks again everyone. And if it does become a new designer breed, I get all the credit right? LOL!

Cheers,
Jo

lol, sorry we kinda took over your thread

Definitely let us know how they do and if they breed, if they seem to stay healthy, ext.

Anyway, when I take over the world and Muppies become the new black, I'll be sure to give you credit

Female Guppies and Male Swordfishs mate!

Hey Dragon,

Thanks so much, this forum answerd my question i signed up just to say thanks. I have a 40 gallon tank with all guppies male and female for a year now. I say a black swordfish and couldn't pass him by 8 mths. I think he mated with the female guppies before he past recently (R.i.p Emanuel) I now have 5 "mules" i believe and they are beautiful. Grey with black spots/holographic blue all throughout there bodies and grew so fast, they are advanced. i will try to post pictures.
