I wanted to post a picture of my new male Royal Endler. This is a new strain.The one was not cheap I paid $6.99 for it at a Local fish shop when the other Endlers sold for $3.99 each. I thought he was pretty so I got him. This shop only carries all male endlers and all male guppies. I guess it's because they do not want you to breed them. I looked on-line and even Aquabid and could not find any pictures of this type. The back 1/2 of it is a Black color with a red doulblesword tail. The top of it's head has a blue neon color so it is easy to see it swimming in my pond. I'm hoping for a mix of the Black Bar Endlers and Royal Endler. I only have 2 Black Bar Females in my pond that I got from a friend.I just wanted to see what I will have at the end of summer. I only put the fish in the pond to control mosquitos.
I have a unfiltered tub pond. They have had a bunch of babies in it already. I kept 5 Black bar Ender males that I put in a 2.5 gal Bowfront desk tank. I rehomed all the female black bar babies.Today I fished out 7 more babies that are all going to get rehomed.Most of the babies in the next few months should be Black Bars.By the end of summer I should see a mix with the Royal endler. It will be interesting what the colors of the males will be.
