IGMX Spektrum


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.

paramaribo type "level teardrop"


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:

random shot


just for fun I took ten pictures in my guppyroom before feeding. The best two you can see here:

Albino Topsword Action! (above)

Some Blue Galaxys and two Blue Leopard (Attention : This are no Blue Grass!) waiting for food.
Both types are heterozygous for Asian Blue (=> r²R²) ... remember the "Red to Blue Cheat"!

I decided to introduce this rare and interesting body-base-color into my lutino galaxy strain.
