Well, for these guys, you just told us you know everything about HALF of them Very Happy Tiger endlers are a hybrid of guppies, and their very similar, males slightly smaller, more inventive/competitive "cousins"

Full endlers/hybrids, they really put on a show wen the males are wanting to breed. I find them to be pigs Very Happy They are said to not eat their own young.

I didn't accuse you of such a mean thing Bill! Doxie said she "but know all about guppies"

Many days I don't think I know anything about anything!

That "know all" is a very broad claim!! LOL.....I'm just like you two! Some days, I don't know a whole lot about anything!! Just letting you guys know I'm familiar with Guppys ..NOT Endlers!
So if they don't eat their young...do they breed as prolifically? And are the brood numbers about the same?

I can't talk them into sitting still enough to count!

Ok, for sake of counting, I saw how many I could catch. With catching mostly juvi's I got up to 53, Still probably that many left in the tank at that point. Didn't catch any of the adult females or the well colored up males.

Kat!....LOL. I will never ask for a group photo!! If they wont even stay still for a head count!!....Ahhh kids!bounce bounce  So the broods are about the same.
How can someone be SURE they are breeding real "Endlers" and not a "mix". Bill says that's very common so IF i got some...would I have to know/trust the breeder??

Someone shared a tip with me in how to figure out the number of fry ya have!,.., Take a photo of it, bring that photo up on some photo editing software and super-impose the count over each fish! Bill

Photo editing would work if the whole tank could be in focus at once and no hiding places. I've done it for snail egg counts before, but I can't get it to work for endlers.

So far as hybrids or mixes - you need to know what pures look like and what hybrids look like as well as trusting who you are getting them from. I have access to orchid endlers.

Note.... the hybrids look just as nice as the wild strain... My post was just to acknowledge that the conservationist are asking that those who do have some wild strains, refrain from diluting the line! Bill
