    Don't think so. The longest the fry was with them was 1 and a half month. But on the other hand nothing will surprise me with guppies.

    Keep an eye out while you breed this year, I always find this one runt male, he stays small and develop color and sexual maturity much quicker then any of the other.

    Might just be mine though.
    You might have some strange phenomenon.

    Yes the last guppies I saw at the petshops did look like they would die as soon as you leave through the pets hop door.

    Maybe someone will be able to help.

    If not send me a pm and I will give you the number of someone that is a anonymous sponsor of this challenge.

    Was at Pet Stop this week and they have a big variaty of guppies, males and females. To my untraned eyes the quality was good. Know it is a bit of traveling for you guys but should be worth it

    guppy.JPG Played around with photo editor today. Much easier than figuring genetics out, although I still suck at altering guppies. This is what i'm aiming for in the end with the orange on the edge of the tail and on the dorsal fin only. Unfortunatally the runt males, with the black markings on the side, have the perfect line on the tail I'm looking for. Will see where this is going.

    But serious that will look great if you have 15 of them in a planted tank.

    So no pressure, just a LOT :)

    No pressure Had the same idee when I started this. Imagened a big school in a iwagumi tank. Nice thing about them is their size and the intencity of the orange.
