Guppy Endler (Poecilia wingei) – content, breeding

Guppy-Endler’s Poecilia wingei – discovered by F. Bond in 1937, were described only in 1975 by the scientist John Endler, and appeared only recently in decorative aquarism.

That is why the color forms of this type of guppy are much smaller than the usual ones. However, the following forms have already been developed: snake skin, tiger, Venezuela, gold, cobra, and several others.

Habitat: endemics of a small number of coastal lagoons – De Patos, Campomé and Buena Vista, located in the northeastern part of Venezuela.

Description: differs from their relatives – ordinary guppies – in tiny sizes. Females grow no more than 3-3.5 cm, males are even smaller – 2-2.5 cm.

Distinctive features of the Guppy Endler:

– bright color throughout the body;

wingei sp tiger

– tail and fins are not so lush;

– oval bean-shaped dark spot on the side, the brightness of which may vary; it appears in fry first, when the color of the body is not yet manifested;

– chaotically located yellow, emerald, purple, orange, red, green neon spots;

– forked caudal fin, transparent in the center, but with extreme rays brightly colored in orange, red or yellow, through which a dark border can pass.

Females are quite faded, golden or silver with a metallic sheen. The anal fin of males is modified and transformed into gonopodies.

In fuller females, behind the abdomen, a speck is visible with developing embryos.

Arrangement and parameters of the aquarium: for a small beak, a small capacity of about 50 liters will do. Best of all Endlers look in a small decorative aquarium with dense vegetation inside and floating plants on a surface.

Incredibly mobile. Males are constantly engaged in grooming females, so it is better if I give more.

For decorative purposes, you can keep only the Endler males in the same tank, as they do not conflict with each other.

The fishes are not only very mobile, but also jumping, and therefore the presence of a cover glass is required.

Water parameters: 22-25 ° C, pH 6.7-7.6, dH 4-17.

They withstand temperatures as high as 30 ° C and even grow faster, but this reduces the lifespan of the fish.

A third of the water should be replaced weekly, while keeping Guppy-Endler’s Poecilia wingei no neighbors can install light filtering with aeration. When living together with other types of enhanced filtering and flow problems for them are not.

They are very peaceful and get along well with dwarf corridors, iris and tetras, small fish, danios and cardinals.

Not compatible with large aggressive species that can damage Endler’s fins, such as barbs. Ordinary guppies (Poecilia recticulata) are also unsuitable for neighbors due to the possible crossing of species and the emergence of hybrids.

Nutrition: in nature they eat detritus and zoobenthos organisms. In the aquarium prefer dry food containing herbal supplements.

For a change in diet, you can give frozen daphnia and cyclops.

Reproduction: very simple, especially when keeping Endlers without other fish. The female is already capable of breeding by 2 months.

5-25 fry, depending on the age of the female, appear every 24 days. Manufacturers almost never eat their fry, but, nevertheless, for the comfort of the kids in the common or spawning aquarium it is necessary to put more moss in which the fry can take refuge.

The fry are large and can immediately take small dry food and nauplii Artemia. With 3 meals a day, they grow very fast. In 3-4 weeks males already acquire the coloring of adult Endlers and are ready to breed.

Fish have a very strong immunity and with proper care are not susceptible to disease.

Depending on the temperature indicator Guppy-Endler’s Poecilia wingei live in the aquarium for 3-5 years.
