This guppy sport is a real wonder regarding the coloration. We obtain the fish from Sri Lanka. The basic type is a tuxedo, eg light anterior body, black posterior body. The caudal fin is of the sunrise type, which means that it is yellow at its base and becomes red towards the border. In each individual the sun has risen at a different stage. All over the body is a metallic coating which shines bright green to blue, depending on the light.
These guppys are very healthy and undemanding. One should keep them, like all guppys, in groups formed of 5-10 males and 3-4 females. In such groups the males are courting the whole time through for the females. The latter seem to be watch all this quite unimpressed, but finally they mate with the male that did the best job – at least in the female´s opinion.
For our customers: the fish have code 418623 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
