green ark


I have got three planted tanks with 12 liter content. These tanks act as genetical ark for some rare guppy varietys.

In this first swims a shoal light blues. the background you can see a young light blue male.

The second tank contents my strain "wine red eyed" Endlers (Lutino Endlers). Some of them carries the magenta gen

Lutino Endler= Wine Red Eyed Endler

Lutino Endler with Magenta Gen

This tanks are low tech tanks. Only an aeration and a good fluorescent tube are attached. Once a week I change half of the water and everything is alright.

In the third one, I keep another uncommon guppystrain.

This strain was started by a red male with blond (aka golden) bodycolor bought in a petshop and a HS red (aka HB red) female from Claus Osche. The female has got the double recessive body colour White. It includes the both recessive bodycolours: blond (aka golden) and the old blue (blue1 = rr) . This blue1 ist not very common in germany just as well the white variety. Last week I got a litter of this white female:

Here the happy parents ;)

All these variatys I will breed in a shoal, like wild guppys.

The female in the second picture looks fantastic. I always care about the shape of the females and that one is simply PERFECT. :) Congrats!

I love your little tanks. My first aquarium, when I was ten years old, was 12 liters. (In U.S., "three gallons".) After a workaholic twelve years without an aquarium, I've been keeping one 40 L. tank since January. Much gratification, though I've got a couple of little predators who have scooped up the few guppy fry that have been dropped in there.

I like the ELB on this website.
I am busy with mixing wildtype guppies and endlers(Brazil ''wiltype'' guppy and a few kind of other guppies and endlers). Once I mixed a Brazil ''Wildtype'' guppy with an Endler which had yellow skin, the guppy that come was an Blond male(Almost colourless)with one orange stripe over the body and in the tale a bit mettalic yellow.

Lutino Endler are hybrids, if you are believe that "P. wingeii" exists. And they are a breeding experiment.
