Thanks Krinedawg, I have a few old books on aquariums and tropical fish, to the tune of some forty years old, and in one of them is a photo, in color of the original guppy. For instance, it had no fancy tails like lyretails etc. It is about half the size of most of todays guppies, and had a few spots of subdued colors scattered around them. I had some of these for a while and was breeding them, but sold out in a nasty divorce. Have now got back into the hobby with mostly new tanks etc. The books are in a shed in the mountains, and I'll have to get it out when I go back up to the cabin. I miss having that book handy.
