Endlers and Pingu Guppy Photos. Enjoy.
 
Greetings. I generally vist the Catfish forum, but I shot these pics, today and thought I would share.

First - my "Hot Tamale" Endlers.

Next - a juvenile Snakeskin Lyretail Endler. The tail on adult males grows longer than their entire body. One of the nicest Endler hybrids that you will ever see. I have not been able to get an adult mail to pose for a picture. I will, though.

Finally - a nice Solid Lyretail Endler. These are a morph of the fish, shown above. The tail on these is not quite as long as the others, but still rather long.

A cute, little fish that I really love.

Ah, the infamous Pingu. Probably the most difficult guppy to photograph and capture the pink coloration. My attempt was feeble - at best.

Thanks for looking. Cheers. - Frank

Well, that's a matter of opinion and much argument. Some believe there is no difference and others believe that they are an entirely different species. I suggest that you utilize Google for your research and draw your own conclusions. Cheers. - Frank

There is a lot of information out about Guppies and Endlers however here is a pdf scientific paper done by John Endler. Basically he never stated that it was a new species but only his belief is that it was a regional population of the guppy in this paper that was isolated to a specific region.

https://www.d.umn.edu/~jetterso/docu...Endler1980.pdf

However there are other documents too as the species also goes by another scientific name So I would have to agree with Frank it is an argument between many involved in regards to is it or is it not a seperate species.
