Who can keep track of the many, many breeding forms of livebearing toothcarps? Aquarists interested in guppy genetics know that there are thousands of possible color and fin combinations in these animals. Many of these (by no means all) can be bred in pure lines, given the appropriate ambition and perseverance. Can you blame the breeders if they like to give their own names to particularly pretty lines? Hardly. There is no copyright on such names, everyone can call their guppys whatever they like.
We have been importing the Guppy Multicolor from Sri Lanka under this name since 2006. It was already being offered by several breeding companies at that time. Current strains from other breeding regions are also offered as Pidgeon Blood Guppys, which is the same breeding form. Regardless of what they are called, these guppies are beautiful, easy-care fish that are always a pleasure to watch.
For our customers: the animals have code 418663 on our stock list. Please note that we only supply the wholesale trade.
