I dunno. I had a trio of imported blue grass guppies and sold them as they weren't fish to my taste at all haha. That about ended my experience with guppies.

The seller who created (I think) that glass-bellied strain has a lot of really nice high-quality guppies, so I'd assume you'd have pretty pure genes to start off with if you got a pair/trio.

I've always thought of myself as more of a betta/gourami person. They don't really appeal to me either.
There's some really crazy swordtails on aquabid. I was shocked at them!

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

I'm a betta (wilds and splendens), killifish and rainbowfish kind of person. I will always espouse the qualities of each of these fish as I feel they have that perfect blend of colour and 'wildness' to them.

I really need a separate room for all the fish I want to hoard.

But back on track, I hope we've given you some valid suggestions Finnfinnfriend on what fish might fit what you're looking for.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

Truedat! We've had our 55 gal for roughly eight years (had guppies from the beginning) and only bought guppies once that I recall... O_o
