The guy at the LFS said it’s an Endler but idk if it’s that or a feeder guppy. Sorry, not the best photos!

He’s super small. Less than an inch, maybe a half inch max.

If you do not know the location it came from you cannot say it is an endler, both of my type of hybrid endlers the males are small, in one type the females are also smaller.
It does not look like an endler but a feeder guppy male (they have much color, i have a few that have intense color, one i had was lavender on half the body and through the lower sword he grew).

If you did not buy it with a record of location or record of generations from the original parents you cannot prove they are endler, at most - with those very basic colors - it is a hybrid. However I am sticking by it being a feeder guppy male, I have had several that have had wicked color and pattern, the colony my females came from the males are flashy and colorful.
