I'm visiting my LFS w/ camera in hand. I want to take pics of what they are calling Endler's and post here for an id.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

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.


.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

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)

Endlers don't eat fry? :o

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

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
