I got another Type of Orangelines! They were collected at
"Zufluss zum Rio Morichal Largo, Brücke des Highway 10, 75km SSO Maturin - 9,45N;63,10W - Venezuela". They look a little bit different to the other type, which was found at "Venezuela, südlich Ciudad Bolivar ; 50km östlich. v. El Tigre: bei El Salto von Mayerhofer/Svardal, 1996".

same fish but some weeks older

I got a female with x-linked APW (American Pink White) some month ago. I took it to a galaxy male and now you can see the offspring. These fish are also heterozygous with stoerzbach metall (autosomal full metall like mikarif) yes and perhaps with lightblue (hellblau aka. r³), too.

I got this picture from Robert Gall. He experimented with some asian magenta fish and his selfbred shorties. Unexpectedly he got some of such "piebald guppys" out of his crosses.

I got this male to take a picture. It s a Vienna Doublesword male without swords.
This fish seems to be one more clue, that there are sword-modification-genes like surpressor genes involved in the Vienna-Sword System ( Bottom,Top & Doublewords). Please notice the sword rudiment in the caudal fin.
keep on reticulata friends!

a few weeks ago Robert Gall was here in my guppyroom. He took some platy pictures with his new camera here - very nice shoots!

here one young Snakeskin with basecolor light blue :
Here one mature Snakeskin male, with light blue basecolor, too. This light blue shining gave the name of the basecolor. Attention! This fish is homozygous. The blue reflections have nothing to do with AsianBlue! The blue shining occurs when the light hits the fish from the front.
(A Snakeskin homozygous of AsianBlue does not show any Snakeskin-Pattern! )

here in Germany we have a great new livebearers magazine. It is published by Interessengemeinschaft Guppys-Mollys-Xiphos e.V. (engl: pool of guppy-xipho-molly registered society).
Here you can view the first two issues:
Hans Großmann refers to the base color "light blue" in the 1st issue. I think this article is a must have, cause he is the important contemporary witness of the detection of the third blue type.

today I present one morph of an wildstrain from Paramaribo/Suriname.
Cause of the horizontally mark at their peduncle it is called " level teardrop".
At my picture this morph seems to be very unspectacularly colored , but if these males tease a female, they get a very nice pattern at their hole body. I am still working at a picture-transforming -collage.
Yes and here is a better picture of the blue Galaxys:

this is my wildstrain , which was collected im Jamaica:
These nice fish are always in action and if the males try to tease their females, they get horizontal stripes on the body (photo below).
Their coloration looks in this moment similar to the horizontal striped variety of "Micropoecilia parae", which you can find at the google-picture-search for example. But my fish are real jamaican"Poecilia reticulata"!
