GUppy cross breed effects.

If a fancy guppy and a feeder mix, will the offspring be infertile? nad it there anything bad about a cross breed?

i dont think so. i just think that it will be worth less when and if you sell the babies back to the store.

I did it before, it made a smaller less pretty fancy guppy. Nothing spectacular. And they are essentially the same fish, just different breeding. Kinda like a wolf and a dog.

OK, firstly, they are the same species, but fancies have been selectively bred for colour and size. Now, breed only wild-type males to the fancy females, because if you breed large fancy males to any but the very largest wild-type females, the babies may be too large for the female to sucessfully gestate.
