What kind of guppies are these? Or just a mix? Any pics of the adults?

These are the older fry im growing out, i am selecting the best for myself then the rest are going to LFS. Not great pics but they never keep still. These are around 8 weeks & just starting to colour up. The parents above are not the parents of these lot.
This batch are from the sisters of the mom above in last post. Yep confusing i know.
I got rid of the other adult moms cos there was too many fry

Also have another 20 in 1 of my main tanks, but i was hoping nature may have taken over but sadly not, they are now 2 weeks old and too big for the adults to eat so i have them lot too (I have posted a pic with the bogwood in background)
I have a lot of Half Black females & Metallic Yellow females in there

Thats what i did with the 10G Retired Viking.
I thought i may have just had a few fry that i could grow out a little. Then maybe select a few of my own colours to see if i can make a select batch of fry for myself. But now the whole guppy thing has taken over. When i saw the new fry yesterday i didnt have the heart to just leave them so i caught most of them that i could see. Today ive seen a few more swimming around my driftwood 🙄
Im pretty sure i am now going to keep some nice coloured males in my 30G with my Corys, then add a few different coloured females in my 50G then still use the 10G for fry, My Cory females look egg laden too but i can never find any eggs

I forgot to say i am actually enjoying the Guppy keeping better than more exotic species,Mainly because there more colourful.
I used to keep mostly Tetras, Neons, Cardinals, Red Nose, but i wanted to do something different this time

Great looking tanks, puts mine to shame. The breeder is almost bare with not even a background on.
My 30G is a bit mucky right now, its overdue a big water change but i keep putting it off.
Not because im lazy, Its cos we are in lockdown & the kids are home schooling so its been a nightmare having these lot at home

My tetra have had no fry since I changed my 55 gallon from my LOTR Castle theme to a more natural sunken forest theme:(. My guppies have the castle now and have had plenty of fry. Not that they need a castle or anything else for that matter to encourage them to have fry:rolleyes:

I was having a fry takeover i my 30G, There was far to many to let them grow up to adults.
I have selected a few better looking males for this tank, So im going to have a Male display. Although i have just spotted 2 small fry in there so im hoping they are males too, Otherwise its all going to start again 😔.
The LFS i use is closed due to the new lockdown here, So i had no place to offload them, luckily a friend stepped in.

Ive still got plenty of room but thats how i like it....roomy.
The setups ive had in the past have been overstocked badly, so up to now ive been able to resist to buy more fish.
I do need a few more Corys though, i have 4 & 1 of them is 5 years old now but he has been on his own in a 10G for prob 3 of them as his tank mates died a long time ago
