The pectoral fins in Guppys are usually transparent. But there do exist sports with black pectoral fins, like the so called „nigrocaudatus“-types and the Moskow Guppys. Breeders have made this peculiarity the target of their most recent new sport. Obviously initially only colourful guppys with pitchblack pectorals were planned, but then the breeders discovered that the pectorals can also become larger by selective breeding. So the elephant ears in guppys developed, a really matching common name!
