They can be a real PITA when it comes to pics. These are the only fish I have that I got to confine to get a non blurred pic of.

This is on of my young male endlers. I am fairly positive they are pure since I got them through the local club. I don't have a collection origin for them, so I can't be 100% sure.

Endlers look like a tie-died guppy. Nearly colorless tail, but splotches of colors on the body.

Beautiful fish, really. (I wish I had some...)
(Posted this before I saw the pic)

Personally, I prefer the ones with more vibrant colors...
The craze seems to be orange and black now.. (shrug)

Some? Some?! SOME?!

There IS not such thing as some endlers. It always starts out like that but never stays that way for long...

Yeah I have occasionally seen mama endler open up and swallow a fry but on the whole, no. So they stack up REALLY fast but on the bright side they are easy to give away! My trick is to get rid of the females after about 4 months, which is when those 3 fry or 15 fry drops turn to 30 or 40 fry per batch.

Honestly I wish they would sell a lot more of these fish!!! Not only are they vibrant, they will fit quite comfortably in those horrid excuses for aquariums marketed for bettas and goldfish! They're hardy, they look cool, you could easily do 5 in a 3 gallon.... and the pet store can just run a few colonies in the back! No need for importing them unlike other fish.

Hmm, Maybe I could make my 10g a small endler colony. :P
