HI this is my beauty. He is around 11/2 years. Can some body identify what kind of guppy he is. Oh..yeah... his tail is not rotten. My female guppy delivered him , there were 2 more like him blue body and orange tail. They have died after being in the tank around 1+ years. They grew up like this with a trident like beautiful tail and comparatively smaller body than other guppies. I have thought this might be a variety of guppy,but recently one of the petsmart expert told that there no this variety of guppy. This might be a mutation.Now since only this one left and he is a beauty I would like to know more about him. I am attaching his photo too. Isn’t he a beauty though!Thanks for any inputs

I don't think a pure line exactly like that exists, and it doesn't sound like you got him from a pure line either. Thus, he is just a very, very beautiful mutt guppy! One that I would consider breeding from to make a line like him. Then you can name it whatever you like to make your own line.

Has the colourings of a flame guppy but the tail shape is amazing! Never seen anything like it

I wonder if emeraldking might know what this is, or at least where to find that variation of tail. It is a very cool fish.

Yellow leopard endlers will throw the trident tail shape occasionally, even though they usually show spades, spears, and lyre tails. I had one or two yellow leopard endlers born on one of my tanks that had the trident tail shape, but not as exaggerated as the one here!

Thanks friends. Now I am so excited to breed him and see the out come. Now I am thanking to my white moon tail beta, who didn’t eat him as a fry. This betta was so sad looking and not eating anything when I got him and tried everything and got tired . ( he was in a ten gallon tank alone) Finally I had lots of new born guppy frys, tried whether he will eat them. What happened is instead of eating them he became active, started playing with them ( it looked so ) and grew up with them . And this guy grew up like this ! I will try to breed him and upload the result

It doesn't seem to be a specific strain. I'd say it's a very interesting mix.
Yes, you could try to breed thim. And see if the trident tail will be passed on dominant or not. It looks a bit as the swallow guppies but it's not.
And again, it's not a specific strain but you could make one out of it. And once you have a stable line, you can label a name yourself.

Beautiful! I would totally be interested in this strain if you develop it!
