    Good day

    This challenge already saw its first version and we are now starting the second year of breeding, sharing,creating and learning.

    It started a year ago when I was looking for some guppies and saw all the great guppies available overseas and yet we had none. All those nice guppies had to start somewhere and I thought we should look at starting getting the SA guppies up there.

    So the idea is to take what we have locally and breed better looking fish and even create something new along the way.

    Here are the basic rules for entering and participating in the challenge:
    1. Choose a male and female guppy (group,multiple fish) as your starting point.
    2. Take a clear photo of both (group) and post for it for all to see.
    3. Set an objective that you would like to reach after a year like breeding a pink guppy.
    4. You may introduce a new guppy to your breeding program (outcross) at any time but one of the fish must be related to the original pair. Meaning you can only outcross to the original fish or any of its offspring.
    5. You have up to 3 entries.
    6. You may join at any time but the deadline will remain the same for all.
    7. Keep the thread updated frequently with photos of your progress, at least each generation.
    8. Should all your fish die you can enter again.
    9. You may enter as a total noob or professional breeder.
    10. Any awards will subject to public voting and comments by a professional guppy breeder if we can find one.

    Then you guys can post away about water,food , fry, progress, failures, ideas etc.

    O and for the tech savy you can keep a photo family tree going too.
