Sounds pretty good :D
Wild guppy could mean so many things.. Anything that's a feeder is often so mistreated I wouldn't want one.
Googling it I am seeing photos of endlers.
And the less desirable endler x guppy.
I would prefer to keep a pure endler strain, I was considering breeding them at one point, but I may put it off a bit.
I love this colour for them but I believe I'd only find them on aquabid.

Most endlers up to date ad actually crosses. Finding a true endelr will be very hard to do, even a one that looks true probably has strains that have once been bred with guppies

Here are some pictures of wild guppies

Well that's the best I can do.. Either way I don't want anything labeled "feeder" kept in a dirty overcrowded tank.. Our store does a much better job with the "pet quality" animals care.

The "feeder" tank where I live are very well kept. But it's all a matter of opinion. And if you feel better off getting endlers then go for it. It's just that my feeders did much better, and lived longer in the same exact environment that I kept my endlers in

The Pygmy cories look small enough that a betta would eat them.... They are like the size of my pinkie nail, around 1cm... Is that a problem?

No. Unless you have a mean Betta, all my pygmies did very well and he even followed them around, my Betta is a social freak

I have pure strain Endlers. I wonder if there is any way I could get some to you, when I'm not a registered breeder or anything? I know import licenses cause all kinds of problems. :(

Australia to Canada? :D No prob!
Actually I would consider that, not with these first guys, but maybe if I like them in general I'd be interested.
Have you seen those white/red colours anywhere? I've seen only a few people selling them on aquabid. They are lovely.

If it could actually be done I'd be happy to get a set of these guys across to you. :) They aren't the white/red ones, though. These guys are a stunning patchwork of rainbow. They have orange and green on their tails, blue and black on the dorsal and red, green and orange on the body (mostly).

I'm kinda worried about my LFS's endlers, last time I just saw a few tiny fry in the tank.. Also it's pure luck about who's working when I'm there! One lady will put anything I ask for on a list for what they need brought in, one guy said they get whatever whenever and it's just luck what comes in >:( pet store people are really annoying.
