Spike Tail Guppies?

I’m not sure if there’s a technical term for this type of guppy, but I’m calling them spike tails for now. These are really colorful, hardy and fast. I don’t think I’ve ever had this type of guppy get any type of disease. (None of that dreaded clamping disease here!) I believe they are a cross between a lower sword guppy and a ginga rubra guppy. They are still on the young side and small, and kind of look like a pimped up wild guppy. So what I got is a shorter and wider “sword,” and some of the ginga body pattern was masked out. It’s an interesting fish, though I’m not sure where I’m going with any of this.

One thought on “Spike Tail Guppies?

  1. I am getting out of the show type guppies, only keeping two female virgin full black moscow out of my black to blue old line! I bought some wild type guppies from Trinidad that are incredibly beautiful with erridescent multi colors and power in their health and vigor, I also bought some black bar endlers localy after a great loss from shipping to far away from home, to these I added some wonderful ginga rubra guppies! Already four week old hybrids of all kinds are showing color and good growth ,I can’t wait until they are full grown! The black moscow females young show a lot of black as expected but look like tgey have some endler type markings, its to early to tell what they all will look like and new ones are being born every day, I’m up to four tanks of young to separate the different crosses and give me some control over future demands and selection of the next generations! I’m so glad I got out of tge show type guppies
