    Has anyone kept the Cobra Endler's Livebearers sold at PetSmart?

    I've heard that they're actually guppy hybrids. I'm trying to track down some pure Endler's livebearers, especially the yellow jacket/tiger variety. I want to keep them with celestial pearl danios in a 20 gallon and eventually breed and sell them.

    I have never seen any pure bred endlers at either Petsmart or Petco. You will probably have to find more of a specialty store or order them onl-line.

    I've only seen guppies at my petsmart, it would be cool to have some of the endler's live bearers.

    I wouldn't trust a big box store to have pure endlers, there is just too much of a risk of contamination. Even if they're legit endlers and not a hybrid, then I'd worry about them being really inbred. Aquabid is probobly the best bet, or at an auction/club meeting
