Currently I have a nice strain of Black Phantom guppies and am trying to track down a few species I kept in the past but never got onto the BAP table.

Crappy cell phone pic. They move too fast.

Your tanks aren't too small. Your fish are too big.

There is a couple folks who purchased a bunch of guppy strains from me off here not long ago. They may see this and have fry for you as well. I dont feel comfortable giving out the names/usernames, but maybe this will bring it to their attention and you can get some fry too.

Where do you guys get your stock? If it comes directly from the breeder, like ATFG, is this first generation (direct descendents) fish or multiple generations from the original material?
