Wow i did not realise that the endlers werent guppies i spose i just assumed :)

Endlers and guppies are very closly related. So they are kind of another guppy species, I guess.

Normal wild guppies and endlers look very similar.

Well done with your photography, Ebhan. I never manage to take a decent picture of my endlers. They are just too fast.

Very cool pic dude, looking awesome! :encouragement: Yeah guppy's & endlers are different species, although they are in the same family they are a different species, guppy's are Poecilia Reticulata & endlers are Poecilia Wingei :victorious:

I have also received the gift of your endlers squiggle post-1108-139909855709_thumb.jpg

was kindly offered some blonde endlers which are from your breeding stock.. and they are doing very well

Beautiful specimen there and great work on the photography. I could never get a decent shot of my guppies, I know these are Endler, they move around so much!!

The color morphs you can get in these guys is astounding. Like shrimp, it truly never ends!!

The camera did all the work. I have a nice dslr, I simply went with manual focus and a quick shutter speed so that was as soon as I have them in focus a quick snap and I have it. Have to have the lights right up on the tank though or else they just come out too dark. I have some other cool snaps of these guys and my black bar endlers but the file sizes are just a little to big :(

Garnie, my pink girl looked like a balloon about to explode the other day (oh it looked painful) last night i couldnt recognise her as she was soo thin, managed to put 8 fry into a breeder net (i think this is her 4th set since i got her). This way i hope to get a better yield since Squig's blue betta cant eat them ;)

Nice work Wraithie, they'll definitely have a better chance without the danger of the hungry hungry betta :encouragement:

Oh the poor thing! :dejection:

Hope the 8 fry will do well.

One of my older females also experienced extreme weightloss overnight....but I can't see any young fry in the tank. :confused: Wonder what happened there...or maybe I should have another look WITH my glasses on. :o

Endlers!! I saw this one on another forum, it's a hybrid created by a member there, I think it's the most beautiful Endler I have ever seen :encouragement: I'm trying to get some off him but I don't think they are breeding true yet :dejection:

Here is what I think.... Moscow male guppy x tiger endler with black bar gene. Easy !!! :-)

That is really beautiful! : OOO :

I still love my endlers and wouldn't mind getting some more colour varieties.

But....I need more tanks! :smiley_simmons:

I do but they are all on my phone I'll try and upload some later.

The blue stars I've got are still juvis though and haven't coloured up properly yet.

 

Here is one photo of some of my blondes. (That pic was taken by Ebhan, another forum member)

      Indeed a good video. Except for his spelling of Desolved in TDS (should be Dissolved) I could not have done any better.

      Yes of course! Forgot about high Nitrates, and of course illness. But we probably need to clarify "low temps" for anyone new to the hobby. Winter months can see water temps fall below the shrimp's preferred temp range. It might not be detrimental to their health but it does slow their metabolism down. The remedy for low temps isn't to just give them high temps either, it needs to be within their ideal preferred range for that specific shrimp, eg Neo Caridina or Caridina or Sulawesi. I have known some people to have shrimp (cherries) survive our Australian winter out in ponds. So they can tolerate fairly low temps for an extended period.

      Also No3 , low Temp , and bacteria infections.

      This is a very good video on the basics if you are new to shrimps. It is called 'How to breed shrimp', not sure why as it is generally everything and a very good  and clear video guide?.

      I find the wrong water parameters for the type of shrimp to be a big factor for lethargic shrimp. It's usually the first sign that something is not right. Any measurable amount of Ammonia, can also cause this behaviour.  Moulting is also a big factor in shrimps being inactive. Right before and right after the moult they hide and usually don't move. The moulting process is very strenuous on the shrimp, and I find protein rich foods (eg bloodworms) helps a ton.
