Creating a new Guppy Strain...

Whenever you start selling them let me know, I'll take them any day over my blue dragons. I've been struggling with them really hard and if 1 of 2 fry aren't a male I am going to give up on the strain  because I've just spend too much money on them :(

I'm so sorry to hear of your troubles with the blue dragons I do love that strain but I'm partial to all blues strains :).   I found since getting back into guppies heavily that some just do not thrive here but if I'm lucky enough to get fry from the trio the fry do much better. I have learned to ask more questions about water chemistry. Fish and shrimp I have purchased that come from chemistry closer to my own seem to do better. 

 

I don't think selling is allowed on this forum and I'm grateful for that honestly. So I would have no way to let you know once I start letting some of the Blue Marbles go. But thank you for your interest that means a lot more than you know. I value this forum for what it is and can't Thank Cory enough for that he's done for the aquatic community. He is the reason I took my guppy breeding to the next level and got into live plants for the first time  just 2 years ago after 22 years off and on with fish tanks.

Best of luck in your guppy adventures. Stay Spicy!

@SpicyFin Thanks for the advice. Not to get my hopes up but I've seen one of the fry chasing the other one (the one doing the chasing has a lot more color too). So hopefully I have a male, I've been trying for almost a year now to get this strain going, I even drove for 2 1/2 hours to get some females because mine passed away. When I get my phone back (I am still under 18 so I can still get grounded) I'll show you guys some pictures of some endlers that I've been working on. I am calling them the Rainbow Flame endlers ( their not like LRB's rainbow endlers) or Violet Flame endlers.  I got them from the guy I got the female guppies. Some males have the color but not the right tail I want. The dad has a tear drop tail with ridges in it a d purple hue around his chest and face the rest is orange. He also has black dots/ pattern that I really like. But none of his sons have the tail :(. Since you have some experience in strain breeding I was wondering if I should let the son with the closest color and tail breed over or would that be a bad idea? The son has the right purple and orange, and a slight point to his tail.
