Luke's Show Guppies

 

HALF BLACK BLUES:   $35 / PAIR OR $50/ TRIO
 
 
 
 

These striking fish originated from a Chang/Alderson Half-black Blue line, crossed through my Black line. This strain was then stablized by inbreeding before crossing with the Polunas strain to create my own variety. The finnage colors are a strking vivid blue. The half-black body is very dark and has good density. The caudal and dorsal are deep sky blue with occasional minor variations in the color. This line is currently bred from 2000 show winning breeders. The females have perfect Robson blue tails, are very fertile. Current 2003 phenotypical and pedigree status is the same!

PINGU PINKS:   $40 / PAIR OR $50 / TRIO
 
 
 

This strain dates back to the late 1970's era when they were published in People magazine and sold for a record $200.00 / pair. Unfortunately, only a few were the top quality. Developed by David Liebman over a ten year period in the 70's, this guppy is a striking metallic half-pink color with a black to bronze belly. Alot of work was done to create this strain and many of the top guppy breeders best strains had been incorporated into the making of the Pingu. As a result the potential for making new strains from outcrossing the Pingus is infinite. This strain was basically lost in the USA for several years but thanks to our guppy friends at New England Fancy Guppy Association, some original stock was reobtained from an English breeder and the strain is now reestablished here in the USA. The photos above are from my stock at 4-5 months of age. The finnage in my strain has been much improved by crossing through the Red Albinos. European and Japanese strains are usually smaller with shorter finnage. The Show winning strain is available at Lukes' Show GuppiesWGC 1999 points are greater than 75 in the show specimens The strain is slow growing, and are the IFGA AOC color class champions for 1999 . Fertile breeds 100% true. Current 2003 Phenotypical status has more coppery pink finnage colors. Please check my stocklist or contact me by e-mail for current availability status.

This strain is big bodied with a delta caudal when fully developed . It is in conformance to IFGA quality standards and is very hardy and prolific. This strain has the potential to handily win the yellow class. Some males may show less intense body colors and have a pinkish color spot in the peduncle, typical of its root phenotype which dates partially back to Piteo Pastel Yellows.This strain is New to USA recently imported by me.
