This rare and marvelous line of Staeck Endlers for sale was discovered in Laguna de los Patos (Cumana region) Venezuela in 2004 and brought to Dr Wolfgang Staeck. With similarities to the "San Jose" Endler & the "Hamburg" Endler, it is very small with an intense chromatic iridescence coming in a large variety of colors and patterns. Occasionally producing a very incredible top swordtail, bottom swordtail & double swordtail which are for sale. Their breeding behavior is that of the Poecilia Wingei ( endlers livebearer ) with the males flaring rituals designated to the best spot in the aquarium where the light hits them best while the females are always gathering food for the future. In my experience, their size is very much dictated by the size of their aquarium, more so than any other fish, endler, or guppy species I've ever owned. For Instance, they are quite tiny if they are born into a 10 gallon aquarium vs a 75 gallon aquarium. Because of their magnificent endlers livebearers type social mating rituals, as always, I recommend a heavily planted aquarium with a strong light including an arena for their courting to be showcased amongst the colony. Staeck Endlers are an absolutely lovely freshwater fish & a fantastic showpiece to any fish room. My #1 favorite fish of all time to own but most stressful to ship because of the variety in patterns + colors, endlers livebearers are very hard to choose who to ship and honestly, I'd rather keep them for myself.
