    Hi guys.
    I'm looking for some really fancy guppies in the Durban area. Not sure the exact species but I will post pictures of them.
    Just looking for the deep coloured very large tailed guppies. If anyone has for sale or knows of anyone in the Durban area that has I will highly appreciate it.
    Thanks in advance[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Don't think you will find those in petshops.

    Actually beginning of last year I found two pairs of them from a tiny pet store. They were magnificent but also old and they only lasted around 3 months. Was so disappointed. I've been trying to get again but the pet store had no idea where they got them from and wherever they thought they got it from I went and checked. Lol.

    The guppies and most fish from petshops are weak. Very young or very old.

    That is very true in must pet stores especially when you walk into a store and see dead fish and poorly maintained aquariums. Fortunately there's 3 or 4 pet stores that are my favorites cos I always get quality at a good price.

    Perhaps ask your LFS to order some good ones - I'm waiting for my gobies and otos from DooLittles Exotic Pets, lady there says she will bring them in on her next order so not sure when that would happen.

    My petshop told me when I ordered 1male and 3female swords. They can't order specific genders, you get what you get.

    My guppy eating a cucumber. It's difficult to take a pic of a moving fish with my phone.IMG_20170625_114249.jpg
