    I know what you mean fishandme3. But I was sold them as french blue star endlers from a reputable source and everywhere i searched online seem to have identical females as the ones i have.

    AFAIK Endler females are meant to be quite drab. Guppy females can have a bit of colour tho.

    A few endler hybrids. Apologies for the quality of the photos - they are really hard to get to keep still.

    That's generally the case, but some female endlers (just like female guppies) can have tail and fin colouration (female Black Bars and Jap Blues come to mind). This is one of my female Black Bars, showing that tail and fin colouration in endlers is possible. It might also be added that if female endlers do get colour, I have never seen it on the body (notice how the colour is contained to the tail and dorsal fin).

    The "swamp guppies" have shown up in years past, but Rods the only one I know of willing to write 10 page essays on them.

    I prefer the chaos of the endler hybrids myself. Tigers for the win.
