  1. I have started two Endler N-class colonies that of course are breeding. One colony is in a 15 gallon outdoor tub and I am leaving them to their own devices. The second colony is currently split between one 10g and one 20g with a few Marina breeder boxes. For this colony I want to attempt to breed the best males. When I got them I took the two best males (which were identical) and put them with three females to get started. They were all young and I can't say for certain the females were virgin but that's fine. My question is does anyone have a specific line breeding program they like to follow in written or chart diagram? I am thinking about should I start to breed F1 females back to P1 males or do people prefer to breed the best of each generation to themselves and then breed back to P1 around F5? I know I may be over thinking this and the best idea may be to let them do their thing and pull out inferior males as I go (which would go to the other colony or eventually a males only tank for my kids). However I want to use these Endlers to get good at this before moving onto a more complicated fish. Thanks!
  2. Hey all I personally love to colony breed all my fish, but I am well aware that for show quality guppies Colony breeding is not the best. I am interested to see if others do line or colony breeding and if anyone you have noticed any drop off in quality based on your different breeding styles. SPREAD THAT GUPPY LOVE
