    So two of my guppies have what looks like a bettas twin tail. Is this just unique or is it a certain variation? I found them at my petsmart :) who are pretty good with their animals from what I can tell. And the tail isn't really split, it's like clear between the two "tails".

     

    Edit: ok, I feel kind of silly asking about this now :) I don't really think they're a different kind of guppy... Just different tail variations. What do you guys think?

    It looks like a lyretail guppy. Very pretty fish.

    They look more like double swords to me because of the dorsal fin. Here's a good picture to help you figure out what they are :

    Thanks! I also think it looks like double swords when I look at that picture, the blue-silver guppy just seems to have a veil tail perhaps with coloration that makes it look split. I appreciate the help :)

    The blue guy looks more like an Endler cross to me.

    They are sold in chain stores as lyre tail guppies. A pretty common fish.

    I also thought that one and another of my fish looked like endler or a mix of them.
