Poecilia wingei (Endler's guppy, Poecilia cf. reticulata 'endlers')

The Endler's guppy closely resembles the wild-type guppy, and readily hybridises with it. For this reason, the regular guppies and Endler's guppies should never be kept together.

Compared with common guppies, male Endler's guppies are smaller, but very vividly coloured, often having black and orange markings on the dorsal fin and tail. Female Endler's guppies are similar to wild-type guppies, but are rather less widely sold.

When collected from Venezuela by Prof. John Endler in the 1970s, these fish were found in a single lagoon containing warm (27C), hard water thick with algae. Thanks to urban development nearby, they are probably extinct in the wild.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Endler's guppies are active, schooling fish much like regular guppies. Males should outnumber females, preferably by 2:1, or else the females tend to get harassed. The males may be aggressive towards one another, but no harm is done. Because these fish are very small, they should only be mixed with similarly sized species, or better yet, kept in a single-species aqaurium where the fry can be collected and raised more easily.

Breeding is similar to other guppies, with little or no effort needed by the aquarist to ensure successful mating. The fry can be raised on liquid fry food, finely powdered flake, and small live foods such as Daphnia. Some algae is probably useful as well.
