Guppy Cocktails

Talking about facts in my Guppy experience:

It's hard to find good quality guppies in México.

When you find great ones, they never come with their females...

And so I have always wanted to find moscows, but it seems to be impossible unless you get them from a professional breeder. In one of my visits to the fish markets I found 3 guys like the one in the picture below, I definitely bought them but only one of them made it, so I decided to put it with three females which did not show any color or pattern.

The result was nothing of disappointing!!! :

Some of them showed big blue, purple and green caudals, generally with the green color along their body.

After selecting and crossing the best male with the most colored females I got really beautiful fishes, body size was more stylished, a little smaller and the caudals were huge, bigger than bodies, spectacular!!!

Greets from México,

Light Colors

Hey people, I know I haven't posted anything yet but I'll try to keep you updated with my guppy work!!!! Recently I have been reading a lot of useful info about genetics, it's been really interesting. Here I'm posting some pictures of my guppies I'm working with.

Nice Males, can anyone give any lights on their genetics?

Cheers and greetings from México
