youth of today


the next generation is still raising up. I*ve got some nice new types here in my guppyroom.
Magenta Lutino Endlers or Albino Japan Blue Topswords for example.

A lot of topswords are raising up at the moment. Especially my Vienna Tops and a the F1 of red bellied Tops. I am very happy.

Mannheim 2007

Last summer I shot this little guppy in Mannheim. It is a "magenta half lace snake skin" guppy, bred by Jinan El-Hakim from Stuttgart.
You can see a light violet shining above the snake skin pattern, that is Magenta.

bye tobi

Magenta Neon Tuxedo

Japan Blue - Red Topsword ( X-Linked)


in the zoomed part of the pic you can see the peduncle of one breeder female, with a reddish angle in her caudal fin. Clearly X-linked :)


Y-linked Topsword


here are my favorite y-linked topsword guys:

one of them zoomed:

The strain was created by one single topsword male and one japan blue wild female.

The topsword-Genes are certainly y-linked, the greenish snake skin pattern on the peduncle is x-linked. Here you can look closer:

In the last litter I found that female:

I was very amazed. Perhaps this little spot in her caudal notices crossed topsword genes(from Y to X). On the other hand it could be possible that this female is homozygote for the snake skin pattern. Both would be great!

Last week she dropped out enough fry for raising up.

stay tuned

The following guppy-pictures were taken by my new “Fuji Finepix S8000 fd”.
It was my first exercise with this camera.

Here is a hybrid between a female Magenta and a Galaxy Roundtail. I’ll not breed with this male, but I show it to you before it became a feeder-fish..
Above you can see a young Yellow Snakeskin. It was raised by Thomas Kersten .
Thomas is a specialized Snakeskin-Deltatail Breeder from northern Germany/ Hamburg.
Thanks Thomas! Your fish are quite nice and still healthy.

This is a young Saddleback Leopard. I don’t like it very much, but for me it was good to know what these cross looks like.

That ‘s a Snakeskin Saddleback, its my favourite Saddleback Shorttail Strain.
It was developed of Hans Claßens yellow Snakeskin Roundtails and one of my Saddleback females.

This is my red bellied topsword breeder male. I’ll try to fix the red belly in one of my topsword-strains and I am very hopeful to identify the gene of this red belly. The F1 is now growing up.

Here the F3 of my multicoloured Saddleback-Flagtail-Strain.
It was developed out of an old GDR Fantail Strain and a red bellied Saddleback male. You can see it below. I try to fix the red belly in this strain, too. But it seems to be difficult, there is some strange co-dominance with the saddleback pattern.

old stuff

Heyho Guys and Girls!

Here is some old stuff out of my room:

Asian Blue ( R²r²) Topsword Male with a nice green shining over his body. Very cute!

A Halftuxedo Pintail - he had an accident. I was distraught!

A Platinum Flagtail, a very old guy - still alive!

A pair Platinum Pingu Bottomswords created by Ramona Osche. Thanks for this nice strain!

A young Topsword, it looks like a Vienna Emerald Topsword.

A red-chested Saddleback, very colorfull!

A x-linked Red Topsword. Found in the tanks of my university.

have a nice day



Hello Guppymaniacs!

This blogg provides an insight into some nice guppyrooms in Berlin/Germany!

Look at this:

It is a combination of the x-linked Red-Topschword (without any dorsal pigment) and y-linked Metarika from Asia.

And now enjoy the action of this young Platinum Halftuxedo
(aka Platinum Saddleback)

So, stay tuned!
