Wow, the more you start out with the healthier the fry are. I started with Guppies with 4 or 5 different stocks. I have never had a guppy deformed do to genentics.

yeah. most of mine have been from different stores (or at least different times) I really would like to get some really pretty females and one more male (unfortunately one of my guppies is a Cobra Endler guppy, or at least thats what it said at the store, so i believe he's sterile.) but I'm worried if I get more I won't have room for new babies.

Something like this:

I have a green cobra endler/guppy hybrid as well. through research I've seen that most often they are sterile. I have yet to see if mine actually is or not, but oh well. Mine is just a little guy. he's probably about half as big as any of the others. (I suspect he is probably about 5 months old.)

So yours are fertile? has the colorings and such been passed on to the fry? I'm hoping mine is fertile (as long as it doesn't affect the health of the fry)

I do not know yet but some fry are different differently colored after. I added him and he started mating and fry were produced. I bought him for color and genetic diversity.

Okay well i'll have to watch. he's definitely been doing his 'dance' for all the ladies in there. I really hope some of the fry end up looking like him. he is such a gorgeous little guy. I think I have a pic in my tanks, but its not a very good one.
