As it happens the majority of endlers you'll buy in shops are not pure wild stock but have some other genes mixed in. Having said that I'm increasingly of the belief that they are just a particularly unique strain of wild Guppy rather than a different species so perhaps the term hybrid may not be entirely accurate.
I look forward to seeing the pics. Good luck, they're very hard to photograph.
Sorry, but I disagree. A pure bred endler, a wild type guppy, and a hybrid endler/guppy are all quite different in appearance.
