    Howdy!
    I am a bit of a biologist and am currently running a breeding program in an attempt to breed some new color strains of guppies! It's a great hobby and I've got some really great colors from them but I am winding up with a plethora of guppy fry that, for no other reason than overcrowding, I can't keep. These are healthy and colorful guppies. The mamas and papas are yellow snakeskin, blue/red large fin tequila sunrise, pure blonde/white and orange/yellow firetail. The fry from their pairings are starting to get their color. I have a handful of pure blondes ready and about 30 that are starting to show color and are showing potential for snakeskin, firetail and blue mixes.

    In any case, I'd love to trade or sell these gorgeous fish. If you want to buy them, I'm willing to sell. I'm also looking to trade. Here's what I'm looking for:

    • Small Aquariums (2g, 5g, 10g, 20g)
    • Moscow Guppies
    • "Other" beautiful guppies
    • Neocaridina Shrimp
    • Corydoras Catfish
    • Lids & Hoods for 10g tanks
    • Bacter AE
    • Any and all plants
    • Driftwood
    • Small Tank Heaters
    • One Brine Shrimp Net
    • Red Phantom or Neon Tetras
    I know that there may be some offset for what my stuff or your stuff is worth in comparison to the other so I'm obviously open to negotiation! I'm not really looking to make a profit from this, I really just have some things I'm in need of or looking for.

    If you're interested, reply here or message me. Thanks! :)

    I might be interested in a trade. Would you happen to have pics of the tequila sunrise and the blondes? They may be what I am looking for to improve my lines.

    I've only been able to get a good picture of the firetail, but I'll try to get some better ones of the others and post them asap!

    What major city are you near? If we’re close I might be able to do a trade with you.

    I'll get pictures up soon, but..!!

    The older generation (F1) is coloring up nicely. I love how they look. They almost ALL have orange and yellow tails. Their dorsal fins are ranging from deep dark blue to orange and yellow. Some are banded. About half of the ones with yellow/orange tails have a dark blue spot where the tail meets fin. The males have an iridescent blue shimmer along their ribcage and stomach. All in all, they are gorgeous F1 specimens.

    Its hard to tell the males and females apart, but I am to keep them separated as they develop to keep the females virgin for the F2 generation.

    For F2, I plan to try to bring out that blue shimmer and pronounce the dark spot near the tail. I am going to try to bring out the orange and black/blue dorsal fin as well. After the F2 generation is bred out, I might backcross with their longfin father in an attempt to get their fins to flare more. So far none of the F1 exhibit long finnage.

    i don't know if you're aware, but check out the dfw fish keepers group on facebook and their buy/sell/trade/free group on band (for live fish sales since facebook is banning all live animal sales). there are also a lot of other dfw fish groups that i'm apart of on fb where you can sell fish etc., but fish keepers is the most active one and facebook's new rules make it difficult.
