Good day everyone!

Are there any other BCAQUARIA members who are breeding endler livebearers or other small livebearer species here in Lower Mainland BC? I would love to trade some of my Poecilia wingei wild strains and Poecilia wingei x reticulata hybrid strains with other members for their livebearers someday! I will post some pictures soon.

Cheers and looking forward to seeing everyone's posts and pics on their livebearer strains and breeding projects!

I am currently keeping and breeding...

Wild Livebearer Strains:

Poecilia wingei var. "Cumana El Silverado" (Specific Native Type Strain of Endler Livebearer). Collected by Phil Voisin in 2013 in a polluted drainage pond beside the Autopista Antonio Jose de Sucre Highway south of Cumana City, Venezuela. Physical male characteristics include short orange swordtail markings, a black or orange dorsal fin, an iridescent platinum coating on the body, and some green, orange, and black markings on the caudal peduncle.

Girardinus metallicus var. "Varadero"

Heterandria formosa var. "Everglades"

Poecilia obscura var. "Oropuche"

Poecilia wingei var. "Laguna de Los Patos"

Yes their body is definitely a light sky blue or electric yellow turquoise colour that was line bred from Japanese breeders.
