But your pix are of fancy guppies and endlers. Wild guppies are much more similar in appearance to endlers. As to how closely related they are, I don't know. I do know that when I was a kid most of the guppies for sale looked more like today's endlers than today's fancy guppies, despite the fancy guppies being the fish bred from the wild guppies over the years.

Spot on Amethyst, when I first saw Endlers they just looked very similar to the Guppies I used to keep thirty years ago.

Wild Guppies are very similar in size and appearance to Endlers and having kept both wild Guppies and Endlers I can confirm that they are very similar in terms of behaviour too.

Redchigh - Comparing domestic Guppies and wild Endlers is like comparing Wolves with Poodles but comparing wild Guppies and Endlers is like comparing the Gray wolf and the Eurasian wolf, they're incredibly similar, hence the debate that still rages about their classification.
