Hi all, thought I'd share a pic of a new type of guppy I've come up with.

Cheers mick

Good work champion !

I will get some pics of what my daughter has done with the ones I got from you.

I added males that the back half is black on (forgot the name) and some chilli endlers, gold tiger endlers and high dorsal blue endlers, there is some magic coming out of that tank. Just got to separate some to see if I can get them to breed true.

Cheers mick

I've recently come across a book on guppy genetics. Blew my mind after dealing with betta genetics. Some traits only males cary, some only females. Guess that's what makes breeding true the hard part.

Breeding true part is min 7-8 generations.

 

Great looking fish! :thumbsu:

Thanks peeps, I'm thinking of calling this a chameleon guppy, as it wags it's tail it changes colour which is pretty cool.

Some pics to try and demonstrate.

Cheers mick

It's only small differences in the pic sort of like a red pearl moving across the blue base.

Do other people see this or am I tripping lol, it looks great whilst it's swimming along, can't wait to get a tank full of males.

Hopefully the next big thing in the guppy world

I see it, but I know what the effect looks like in real life, I have female guppies with similar tail colour changing (the males of the line have a deeper red colour though so don't have the colour changing) which is an odd quirk that developed at some point in the line and I carried forward.

That's damn impressive mate. Maybe I could help by providing a place to breed out a second line to cross back in every couple of generations :P haha 

 

Edit: This one showed up in one of my tanks recently, similar body pattern?

      Going back to culling , i would like to point out that removing too large a proportion of the colony you wish to improve , gets  your there faster , but you reach a point of no further progress for lack of genetic variability.  I tend to cull the worst 20% of my colony once a month and observe a slow steady improvement. Hopefully my colony will continue to improve Long into the future. I have learnt about population genetics when i was interested in breeding fancy fowl, and kept up to date now that i am interested in shrimps and horses. The laws are the same.the greater the breeding population and the lower the percentage that is removed from reproducción, the healtier and more prolific will remain and the further the progress in recombining desirable caracters. A severe rate of culling makes your population very homogenous early on and improvement stops

      I'm still new to the hobby but they kinda look like other post (could be wrong, but he called them glass shrimp)

      For the last pic it looks like a pinocchio shrimp (Caridina gracilirostris).

      Maybe someone will correct me. Sorry couldn't help anymore.

      Newer A/C units now have auto on/off features. Maybe it's time for an upgrade @Zoidburg 😁 The things we do for our shrimp!

      @Zoidburg, happy to do that for you. Moved.

      @jayc Would it help at all to move this thread to General Questions/Discussions? Still looking for ideas on what these guys may be.
