i was wondering if anyone knew what kind of guppies these are? sorry about the water clarity, i just did a water change and the sand got sucked up in the siphon. so the water is still settleing. :-(

kinda looks like an endlers, or a hybrid.

idk what it is but it is beautiful. they were being sold as feeder guppies! i thought they were to pretty to be fed to another fish. so i grabbed some of them.

if you can get a clearer picture it would help. Endler's livebearers are closely related to guppys, however in a feeder tank? ugh. Im wondering if it was someones fry they brought in, or a bunch of hybrids that the store didnt want to sell. They might be one of the most beautiful fish in nature.

this store doesn't take in fish, only buys them from the seller. and the shipment had just come in that day and they were taking down the can't buy fish sign as i walked in. so the supplier sold them the fish mixed in with feeder guppies, the tank had these, and just some plain colorless guppies in them. i wasn't complaining. lol. i will get a clear picture and post in about 10 min

please ignore all the clutter in the back. my daughter's background got ruined and i am in the process of finding another spongebob background. seems like the stores around here don't carry them often and they sell out quick when they do carry them. lol.
