I did and still do... This strain has been around for many years already.
The name bumblebee guppy is something the commercial trade came up with pretty late for originally it's called pingu. This is short for "pink guppy". The first commercial name for this pingu was "Flamingu pingu". So, not "Flamingo" but "Flamingu". The name "pingu" is the name that is used by serious guppy breeders and keepers and also in the show world. And not the name "bumble bee guppy".

In the pingu there's also moscow in it. The females of this strain are also used in dwarf panda guppies. For dwarf panda guppies belong to the pink guppies and moscow, tbh. There's also a yellow pingu variety. Despite of the yellow fins of the normal pingu, it's not the yellow pingu. Where the pink is on the normal pingu, the yellow pingu develops a yellow color on the pink coloration..
