The most tanks I have ever taken care of was 5 . Now I'm down to three 10 gal. but I am also thinking of all those endler babies. Back in the dark ages I raised fancy guppies for a small local fish store and just keeping and sexing the young fry in seperate male and female tanks. Do you have to do that with the endlers or do the parents and fry of each strain stay in the same tank? I read that they don't tend to eat the fry like guppies and plattys do? I have no more room otherwise I would strongly consider a few endles . Those green chested ones were really pretty. I love looking at the pictures that you post and didn't you say you keep 30 different strains of endlers? Alison

Hi Alison,

In general endlers and wildguppies don't tend to eat their fry. Therefore you're able to keep adults, juveniles and fry in one tank.

Yes, I do have 30 endler strains overhere.

I myself haven't got the green chested blue star at home. I've seen them a couple of times in the past 2 years. This shot was taken when I was in Berlin. This is a male from a good friend of mine. This green chested one ain't that hard to create. You need to cross the blue star with a limegreen endler to accomplish this. I myself have the regular blue star and the blonde blue star (hybrid) overhere.

Btw, lots of adult fish tend to eat their fry but this could pass if you're patient enough. When bigger fish are used to have such small company in their tank, the hunting will get less and if you're lucky they'll stop hunting for those baby fish. Ensuring for a 100% that they won't hunt, is something I won't say. For it's only a natural thing that they'll hunt. But it can become less once they're actually used to smaller fish in the same tank. But most people are not patient enough to test this...

Yep, space is definately the killer when it comes to expending the amount of tanks. Same thing overhere!
