Guppy ID

I bought these guppies a few days ago and I was wondering what kind are they? Any help is appreciated.

i don't think they're double sword tails, they're endlers IMO.

endlers are from the same family that the guppies are from. they're smaller compared to the guppies and produce little bioload, which is good for maintenance. they're usually recommended when the tank size is small (5-10gal). they're pretty and easy to take care of.

what do you mean by "good type"? if you're referring to compatibility, they will get along with your female guppies.

They're not endlers, it might be an endler guppy hybrid though.

Are you sure? They look more like guppies to me... But I guess they could be endler/guppy hybrids

I'm still not sure what the difference between the two are. But I looked up endlers live bearers and the male look to be one. The females though look like normal guppies to me
