I just got a black male guppy today! I'm going to find a female for him, also. Its exciting, the thought of getting black fry!

Although they are kind of gorgeous, I've decided to get rid of my black female simply because the black overrides nearly all the other genetics and I end up with a bunch of black guppies. It seems the really gorgeous colors are really hard to pass along so good luck with that ;)

I got green, orange,red,black,yellow, and a whole lot of different colors from breeding my gups, probably because of the colors passing off from different generations.

That's cool. I'm hoping to breed in some cobra patterning but so far haven't gotten more than a spot or two.

Oh I'm so sorry. It's always hard to loose a fish, especially one as gorgeous as him. Do you have any of his offspring?

I sure hope so, not sure who is the daddy to the fry I have now, but I am sure hoping it was him. I would love to see a copy of him in one of them for sure . *S* Lost one of my females tonight.... so frantically looking for answers to what is killing them.

Oh that sucks. Yeah I'm not organized enough to figure out who is the father of what batch. I just let the male and females do what they want (well first gen anyway). If you have a bunch of fry my guess is there will be at least one who will look like him. Maybe you'll get lucky. I hope you find out what is killing them off (or at least stop loosing them)

I know what you mean. I've lost a couple females in the past month or so and the main reason I haven't replaced them is I have yet to find some really gorgeous females.
