Grass - Red Grass

In keeping grass (strain), there will be mix of blue grass, red grass and blau. Red grass is one of the less appreciated fish (for most people) when it is compared to its counterpart – blue grass. Nonetheless, I do find that it is interesting and good to introduce this fish to all of you. If I happen to spot a nice blau guppy from my grass collection, I will then share with you.

At a young tender age of 3 months, this red grass has a thick body and it has a very good potential of a show fish with its tail and deportment. It also shows very fine and dense spots on its tail which is a true feature of a grass.
I personally like the dorsal which is thick and "upward standing". This caught my attention when I was doing my regular rounds to feed my fishes so I took it out for a photo shoot.

Flamingo Red – 佛拉名格

Recently, many breeders I know are in the trend of using this fish as tool fish for development of their red fishes.

This fish does not stand out in its not fully covered (red) compared to the Full Red. Nonetheless, it has a very well built body size which the albino Full Red cannot achieve. Another nice feature of this fish is the tail spread, its tail is very wide and delta. The nicest feature I personally fine in this fish is its dorsal. It is thick, upward standing and broad. Comparing to some fishes, the dorsal are long thing and “clamped”. This adds to the deportment of the fish and it portrays a confident look.
Some pictures of the younger fishes which are about 10 – 12 weeks old.
