good news bout new fish
the pet shop i work for is now going to sell endlers.....a breeder has contacted them and the manager has agreed to get some in.......i think my tank will be full of endlers sson ::):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
endlers are very rare in the UK so i feel quite lucky to be able to get them.....im goin to get a larger group and see how they do :):):)
cool cool...endlers are nice...were i am at new color morphs are about...i thin they are all awsome though...you probably know this ...but if you dont they can hybridize with guppies...most people dont want this...myself included...keep us posted when you get some...ADIOS...
i dont have any guppies and i want to breed enderl and just endlers.....but maybe in furure i mite add a few FEMALE GUPPYS and see what colours/size/shapes i can breed :):):)
......i will get pics when i eventually get some :):):)
I thought endlers were guppies? What's the difference?
Either way, they're very neat looking fish.
Endler's are "cousins" to the guppy, and so many times the two species have been interbred that there are all types of hybrids. All these hybrids are fertile. True I've read and heard that true Endler's strains are hard to come by. Every time I see a tank marked "Endlers" in the LFS they are always guppy/Endler's hybrids.
There was a period recently in which alot of my local Fish shops had Endlers in stock so I bought some and managed to find a dozen beautiful Endlers hybrids that a customer had brought in and I got them for £1 each! Bargain!
I've added them to my Guppy breeding programme and they're producing some wonderful results...healthy, active, hardy, beautiful Fish with a unique appearance, I'll get some photos up soon.
I think the jury is still out on whether they're actually a seperate species though. Personally I'm not at all convinced they are, they're very similar to wild type Guppies and I like to think of them more as a regional variant or at the very most a sub-species.
You won't regret buying them, I've fallen for them big time.
