CHANG RED ALBINOS
Exellent, large-bodied, sturdy fish with deep red color in the finnage and most of the body. These fish exhibit their best colors after 7 months of age. I've bred this strain for over 15 years in my fishroom and maintain OVER 30 TANKS of red albinos. This line traces its lineage back to the Reinholt Kleiss and Midge Hill reds. It is a very hardy and prolific strain. These red albinos are occasional show winners in both Breeder Male and Albino classes. Extremely fertile; the late color is more intense and more red than most red strains.
A very large body, dorsal and caudal with red color that extends through most of the body. A prolific and hardy strain which is genetically gold. This strain is the winningest line of guppies so far on the show bench. Also available is a related gray-bodied line which, also with exellent deep red color; fertile.

HALF BLACK BLUE
A striking, large-bodied strain which is genetically blond. The caudal and dorsal color is a pastel white. An intriguing strain that was developed in the late 1980's by using gold bodied females from a half black pastel strain which took a number of years to perfect. Not for the beginner.

JAPANESE & GERMAN IMPORTED STRAINS
Now in the USA!
RUSSIAN RED METAL SNAKESKINS
This strain has its origins in Russia and is said to be the source of the Moscow blue guppy strain by a mutation. The males have yellow or red lace varigated pattern in 50% of the body which extends completely into the caudal and dorsal fins, with steel blue metal heads. The matching finnage and 1/2 body pattern should go well in AOC or Red Bicolor classes at the shows.
JAPANESE GALAXY & MEDUSA STRAINS
Including Albino Varieties!
These strains originated in Japan from two separate sources using the same strains to make the cross! The different breeders named their strains differently but the similarity is remarkable. The original strains used appear to be the platinum neon and the Snakeskin or King Cobra. They are characterised by striking bicolor metallic gold and black body patterns all the way to the head! The caudal colors range from yellow and black to olive gray with yellow spots which resemble stars in the midnight sky! Very flashy and prolific.
