    Just out of curiosity, I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on what type of guppies we have here. These were some adopted fish friends we got.

    My daughter loves them and the tetras seem to barely care if they are around. Ok, I'm having a hard time uploading a video, so here are the best shots i can get.

    And this was a random young one that snuck in the net at some point and we didn't see it until driving home. Any ideas what it will be?

    (1) picture is a female cobra
    (2) is a male bumblebee
    (3) is a male tequila sunrise
    (4) is a young female, which is a bit young to tell what kind very well.

    Thanks so much! That's awesome knowing more about them! There are so many different kinds.

    Was the young fancy the young one in the breeder box?

    Yes, the young female is the one in the last picture.

    *she's is not a fancy, I made a rather large typo of it ;) most female guppies, even if born from fancies, will usually have gray/ silver or other pale, light color as their overall color, with the most colorful part being the tail fin which is also usually smal.

    Also the guppy in the very top picture might be a male, I 'll need a closer picture to tell.

    No problem!
    sorry about the confusion but now looking at picture number (2) again, it's looks more like a red tuxedo.

    Best I could get. Ha, they are fast and I can't get a video to load

    Looks like the second and fourth pictures are males, and I'm pretty sure the other two are females, but could you get closer up pictures of the anal fins?

    yep, I know how hard it is to take pictures of fast-moving fish.

    Ok, I can kinda see now... the guppies in the bottom picture I'm very sure are both females, quite colorful for their sex. 3rd picture is a male, and if I'm correct the top two pictures are just repeats of the last one right?

    They are, thanks for confirming it. It looks like I have probably 2 males, 3 females, and one probable female youngster. That should work.

    Maybe we'll see some fry survive!
