    I think at least 9 new strains of the wild Endlers were introduced into the USA by a collector in Venezuela. You have one of them (White Peacock).

    The black monocle fits the description of the original Endler strain collected by Dr Endler himself.

    That said, you have a very nice white peacock strain. The caudal markings are nice.

    The strain that you posted is the orange strain. If I remember correctly, this was bought in by some of the fellow guppy hobbyist. Let me try to snap a picture of them in my tanks.

    This strain is probably the one called Red Chest, from stock collected by Armando Pou in Venezuela.

    let's keep this thread for discussion and posting of Endler strains. I moved the other discussions about keeping and hybridising Endlers over here http://www.aquaticquotient.com/forum...ad.php?t=15608
    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.

    Kanz, 6 months is really a long time. I once owned a pair of Endlers that did not reproduce at all. The female was big and fat but she never once dropped any fry. After 2 months of zero progress I passed her on to a friend of mine in the hope of getting them to finally produce some fry. He too kept them for a few months before he got fed up and passed them on to his friend. As far as I recall, the pair are still alive now and still zero fry. Almost a year already.

    Hi Guys,

    It's very tough and a very good fish to start off for beginers. I got almost a hundred fry with 3 months from 2 pairs. Some ar enot so productive but certain changes to their enviroment can trigger them spawn.

    I have almost all my endlers breed and grow out in small tanks. If you follow my postings on the trade subforums in various forums, you;ll be able to tell the type of tank I'm using...

    If you can't keep endlers alive, he/she can forget about keeping fishes.

    Once I have the time, I'll try to take more picture of various strains that I have to showcase here where there are hobbyists appreciate these little gems.

    JY... It is 1 month lah... With 6 babies only... You got the numbers mixed up...

    Anyway, any idea what could be the reason why your never had babies? Wrong females? Genetics? Hmm...

    My females dropped more fry... But only managed to see about 4... Hope there are more hiding among the roots of the Limnobium sp in the tank...
