I went to a LFS and bought a male guppy and a female endler. 6ish hours after I got her home she droped like 30 of these well 15 male 15 female. Then the original male female hooked up had some babies. Got a female guppy from a LFS more babies. Now all these are mixing up more babies more babies. Of coarse I don’t know who is mating with who my wife and I just loved seeing babies. So after about a year of this I give away like 40-50 fish and keep the 2 best male and 6 female. I only breed with one male and what I got was nothing like the father just drab males with a little color on their tails. anyways I gave same person some and kept a few. When I moved the parents didn’t make it. Mom to a python mistake and dad passed a week later. So I have 10 fry from new too 1/2” and they start passing and unfortunately I’m still resetting all my tanks and only 2 survive. I tried medicating but they probably didn’t get the attention they needed. A M and a F is what I’m left with. now I have them in my plant grow out and of coarse here come the babies. There’s 4 about 1/2” long now I see atleast 3 new ones today. And one of them has really red coloring. so question is are these worth my time (really just for kicks) to breed and see if I can get something good from them down the road? Or is this a waste of time because who knows what’s in there and if I wanna make beautiful guppies I should start fresh?
