    I prefer wild guppies, used to catch them in a drain in Orchard Rd (near Thai embassy) in early 70s. [:]
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Those are very pretty.. I especially like the third picture.. Can't find any that are blue like that here in the stores.. You have to order them from breeders..

    I've just recently gotten a few guppies myself.. Always looked at them, but never bought any.. I'm glad that I got them though.. They really are quite lovely and fun to watch..
    I''m going crazy, but that''s okay.. They know me there..

    Wah, good to know still got serious guppy breeders in Singapore. For a while I thought the entire guppy hobby in Singapore collapse. The serious ones lah, not the beginners who think guppy are easier. So far on average, my discus outive guppies. *heehee* Shows how bad.

    Very nice fishes you got there Chris, you bred em yourself?

    Hi!
    For the third pic, that fish will turn blue depending on its mood and the angle you look at it, ohterwise the lower half will be blue-black. This fish is not a show fish... those from breeders are much nicer.
    For the first 3 pics, those are the fish I bred. I bought the albino sky-blue but there are fries now.

    Hello!
    If you want the neons, I can give them to you. But they are not show-quality fish, juz look at their tails... I got 4 males and about 10 females, about 5 mths old.
    Juz give me a call when you are free.

    Very nice.
    I started out with some varieties you have.
    I like the blue tuxedo male you have. His fins are very nice, good potential to breed, if not too old. You want any females?

    I have 5 male and 3 female now....one whole body and tail pale orange, one greyboby blue tail fin and last one is grey body with red tail fin. One of the red tail just gave birth..... guess what I feed them MILK POWDER... and the flies feeds on it??? cos never do the sea monkey... before seems quite troublesome

    female hard to come by.. cos my place here the owner prefer to sells male ones cos it colourful(easier to sell). What colour is your female?

    U always start out with cheapo guppys, after few success breeding for a few broods, u will want to venture to better and rarer strains like us.

    Where u staying?? Maybe we know some lfs which has females for sale. For guppy frys, u just need to crush flakes into smaller bits and they will eat. But bbs still the best for raising the frys.

    Chris: Jus went to Serangoon today and bought an old ribbon female (crossing my fingers that she will survive to drop at least a brood of frys to get my $$$ worth) at Rainbow $2.50 and a male hb pastel at Petmart for $1. The male pastel looks similar to my albino male used for breeding except the albinism.

    Guppys can live max around 2yrs.

    Go lor harlus No.63 or Tropical, they have reasonable female guppys but do quarantine them for at least 2wks for any internal parasites or other diseases.

    Dun think Lam Hong has female guppys for sale yah?[]

    Best is if u can get Chris's females, at least u know that its should be free of any potential diseases.

    In future, go out wif us for any guppy "hunting"!!!!

    Hey Derrick! Got this lobang never call me immediately.[] I didn't go online these 2 days so did not see your post.

    I think you better outcross now... you know the method to get both albino and normal fries in a single batch? I need to outcross my albinos too.

    Actually I feel that no. 63 fish must quarantine for at least one month...
    Once my fishes get sick and you know what will happen next...the intestinal worms problem is re-surfacing... almost eradicated, one pesky worm just refuse to come out and be slayed!

    Hi Joestoys, I feed cereal to my fries. Milk powder is a good fry food too but you must feed a variety of different foods to aid their growth.

    You know the farm that sells lou han and other cichilids at seletar, the road along the old folks home? The other farm in the same premises, that keeps a lot of furry pets, will have some nice male guppies at times. I like the platies there but stocks are low recently.

    Aiyah, Lost my $$$ on the old female ribbon!!!
    Died this morning w/o any frys[]

    But the hb pastel from Petmart still doing fine (crossing my fingers!! )

    Till now, my frys seems to be strong and active, only those 2nd generation frys seems weak, think after quarantine the hb pastel male, will intro him to my 2nd generation female for outcrossing.
