Hi all, I got some endlers recently from slin1977 some dodgy pics of the males

Can't remember the names of the first 2 DSC_000003_zpsemufrcaq.jpgDSC_000020_zpslq2wynah.jpg

Hope you all enjoy, and any tips on what ones to cross would be helpful.

Personally i would like the magenta with a double sword.

Cheers mick

Hello mick....

Endler genetics is really fascinating , I am of the opinion that the irredesence gene that we see in our guppies came from endlers years ago. Since guppies and endlers are closely related species hybridisation occurs easily .

That black bar male with the double sword came from yellow tigers and that japan blue cross.

just goes to show how strong that black bar gene is when it shows up after an out cross where black bar was not used for at least ten generation!!!!!

Now , that magenta gene what it does is completely wipes out tail extensions to make round tails-

have fun with them .

Thought I'd jump in, apparently the person who discovered endlers gave a talk once at the aquarium society of vic, and he claims there's no such thing as pure poecilia wingei, and that all endlers are hybrid now with guppies, as the inhabit the same waters.

Saying that, we (me and the boss lady) try to always refer to ours as endler guppies, as they are different to guppies, mainly being endler guppy males are much smaller than "guppy" males.

We currently keep pink platinum, gold leopard, neon tuxedo and red line endlers.

I believe Maddie is getting in some Japanese blue endlers also in the coming weeks.

Would be great to see people spend some hardcore time with breeding endler guppies

Should go for it Jamie.

Endler guppies are a just add water fish, with awesome colours.

Hoping to get something guppy club style up and running also ;)

Pretty sure we had red line's and gold leopards on the table.

Hopefully we can get some N class endlers sent over from a friend in wa. These are the "most pure" strains of endler possible, and have only ever been imported to Australia once. One person bought every strain and still has them going.

Let me know. I have some bright gems that will captivate you forever.

Oh I forgot.... Totally shrimp safe as I don't feed live foods ;-)

Hate trying to photograph endler guppies. I usually just film for a minute then find the best still from it.

They just don't stop moving!
 
This is a bad shot of the pair, taken the morning after they arrived home.
 
She is now very round, ready to drop. And his colours have intensified too.

      Welcome fellow UK shrimp keeper! I would think it would be better to remove the shrimp into the quarantine tank and keep them there whilst you treat the fish in the main tank and once you finish treating the tank and fish do a complete water change (maybe 2 a week apart for safety) before returning the shrimps. That would seem the best option though obviously the shrimp would need to be in the separate tank for weeks. I'm not aware of any medications available for ICH that won't kill shriimp and/or snails. With neocaridina they probably will just about survive 30 degrees but you are pushing it close to the limit! I don't believe ich affects shrimps.

      Re-posting here from The Shrimp Spot forum as I need help. Help, 40 litre tank has a ich (ichthyophtyirius multifiliis) / white spot outbreak. We've been able to separate the few surviving neon tetra into an emergency quarantine tank, with appropriate medicine for the fish. We had done this as we had noticed the issue practically too late as we miss identified the white spots as cotton mouth (which the tetra also have). We luckily quarantined the fish from the tank as  the ich reached its second stage as most have matured and abandoned the fish. This has become an issue as even if the neon tetra do not survive the treatment, I cannot re-add them to the tank and I don't want to keep the tank's environment full of parasites. Thankfully ich seem to not be able to effect the shrimp but the medicine we have for them is toxic to the shrimp and the plants in the tank, hence the separating of the neon tetra. I was wondering if there was anything I can do to the tank while the shrimp are still in the tank, as removing them isn't a viable option. We've been trying to get the temp of the tank to 30C and leaving it at that temp for an hour, however the tank's heater is verry slow and doesn't seem to be going up past 27C. From what I've searched 30C should kill of the ich without irritating the bloody mary shrimp too much (too many websites vary their recommended temp, so I wouldn't keep it above 28C long if we were able to get it that high) If anyone knows if there are any ich treatments or methods of killing ich that are safe for invertebrates and potentially plants I would love if they could suggest one.

      For beginners and smaller tanks, I recommend glass aquariums because of their affordability and scratch resistance. For larger, more advanced aquariums, we recommend acrylic because it's lighter and easier to repair than glass.

      Hooray! I was hoping it was molt but he hasnt progressed at all in about a week. Thank you guys so much for your help again. Ill keep an eye out.

      It looks like the shrimp is about to moult.  I don't keep Ghost shrimp, so I'm not too familiar with how they look when going into a moult. But the white band along each joint is common in other shrimp when they start to moult.
