I think I have a hermaphrodite Guppy


Recommended Posts

I had noticed this guppy in the tank for a while, originally I thought it was a male  when younger, then perhaps a female due to its size and the other males trying to mate with it and now I am thinking its a hermaphrodite. If it is and it is pregnant as it appears to be in the photos are its young likely to survive? Have congentical defects? Be more likely to carry the trait? Has any one else had a similar guppy?

The main points for guessing its an hermaphrodite excluding colour (we have very colourful females with broad tails and long dorsal fins)

* Size and body shape, has female body in shape and size

* Appears to have a gonopodium instead of a squared off anal fin like a female.
