    Just went to Petsmart and bought 3 male endlers (only had males :'( ) for $.97 each because they were on sale.

    So I was wondering if they were pure strains or not. They look pure to me, but I've never kept endlers before so yeah......
    They are in my soon to be cherry shrimp tank ;D

    Anyways pics!:

    What do you think?

    They look very close, but I still think they are hybrids. It's almost impossible to find pure ones in a chain store. The patterns don't look quite right. Also, the one farthest left in the first picture has a really small black bar and some blonde-ish coloration, from what I can see.

    Can you get any better pictures?

    I second that.
    Looks like hybrids to me. Dorsal has a little white gives me the first sign.
