Does anyone have pics of male Wild/Feeder Guppies?

I think my baby male Guppies I bought from a feeder tank are actually Endler's Livebearers, or at least cross bred with them. They look very much much like this which should be an Endler's:



My Guppies are all developing the exactly same orange areas and two black dots as shown in the picture, which could be a coincidence. If anyone has any good pics of non-fancy Guppy for comparison, I would like to see them.

What a stunning looking fish, we don't get anything like that over here in the UK.

Grimlock- That is a nice shot of a half-swordtail male Endler. It is possible you've got some cross-bred guppy/Endlers, as they will inter-breed freely.

I was fortunate enough to pick up a small group of these fish a few months ago; most were tiny juveniles but are quickly growing. I hope to have some little ones shortly.

hi guys,
sorry to disappoint you, but this is surely not an endler... it's a wild guppy or some crossbred. endlers can be told from the tail form: real endlers have REAL dublesword-tails. something transparent in between the swords make it a wild guppy or a cross-bred endler.
I looked at getting some for my 20g tank, and came across this whole topic.
it's very sad that there are so many cross-breds... it'd be cool to keep endler populations "clean", they're so beautiful!
