These are 2 Female sisters from a batch of fry last year, I kept these back for myself. The Male is from another batch with different parents but approx same age, As he was interesting colours i kept him too. He also has a blue snakeskin brother in my other tank.
The Corydoras were photo bombing in some pics 😄

Looks like a nice one that. Im not sure on the strain to be honest. I picked them up as mixed females with dull colours in the LFS, I gave all the adults away at the time & kept the nicest coloured fry for myself.
Im going to buy a nice strain of a male now to put with the virgin daughters in the other tank, Just to see what happends to the colours

which type?

it would be cool to have a dumbo black moscow or turqoise (they might be the same thing that's just what they're called at petsmart) to cross with them, could produce some weird looking colors!


you could get something rare of the non dominant genes but that is unlikely

my red fancy (has genes of white and blue)
mated with the japanese blue lyretail and the babies are like wild guppies!
(she died tho... :( )

Sad that she died. Im not sure what im looking for yet. No rush as the fry are still a bit young yet.
sometimes there's really cool mutts in local pet stores
not much of chain stores
my local pet store has a different strain of mutts every time i go there, they are sooo pretty

The LFS i use for my supply of fish have boring colours of Mutts.
You can get nicer strains with great colours but you have to pay a premium.
I can get 6 Mutts here for £5.
Dumbo, Moscows or Fancy Guppies are sometimes £5 each.
Maybe i should pay a premium & get something really nice

It also depends on the location you live. In the other area more nicer guppies are offered than in the other area. At least, that's something I've noticed...

Yes i agree, Location matters a lot. The guy in my LFS said the cost of shipping fish has rocketed in the last 18 months as a result of Covid & Brexit

Gorgeous! Similar to my guppies that I posted the other day in the photo & video forum. Mine are all boys. From eBay: 5 Fancy Male Mutt Guppies
