I just thought I'd mention that I'm pretty sure this is an Endler hybrid, the other one that I had this tail type showed Endler colours so that may be a clue as to why the dorsal fin is short...this is also slightly smaller than the average male Guppy, both things I shall have to work on.

Kitten, you saying about it being a leopard Guppy led me to Googling leopard crowntail and these came up...





These were labelled 'crowntails', some people call Merahs crowntails and I think that's where I've got confused. It seems to be linked to certain Leopard (snakeskin) lines but I suspect there's no reason it should be exclusive to it.

I think my question has been answered, thanks.

Will do, I want to do something different and this is the road that's opened up in front of me so that's the one I'll take.

I'll keep you all posted with some pics of how things are going and I plan to show them at some point. I know I'll get heavily penalised for 'incorrect' tail type as they don't fit into any standard but at least it'll improve the crowntail's profile, there seems to be alot of confusion surrounding them at the moment.

Thanks for your help Kitten, I would never have got to the bottom of it without your help.

That would be great, I will need some at some point but I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to need to compliment my line yet.

I found this pic of a Crowntail the other day, I think it's the prettiest one I've seen so far...maybe apart from mine LOL.
