Yellow Tiger Endler (Poecilia wingei) Fish Species Profile
Yellow Tiger Endlers was developed by a man called Adrian Hernandez who took wild Endlers and crossed them with captive fancy guppies and invented this particular strain.
Yellow Tiger Endlers are hardy, adaptable, and peaceful. They will get on with most fish in the community aquarium but avoid keeping them with larger, more aggressive fish as they will nip at their tails.
These fish have beautiful colouration, they boast an incredible yellow and black colouration with red and blue highlights, making it one of the most exceptional varieties of the Endlers.
Their small size makes it perfect for a planted or nano aquarium as well as being added into a bigger community aquarium.
Yellow Tigers often occupy the top level of an aquarium, but you will also find them in the middle and bottom levels foraging for food.

Yellow Tiger Endlers originate from the very green due to so much algae, warm, and hard waters of Laguna De Patos, the coastal lagoons in Northeastern Venezuela. Originally it was brackish water but because it was cut off from the ocean has since been altered due to run off and is now classed as freshwater.
Yellow Tiger Endlers Will eat most food you offer them, from flake food and pellets to frozen or freeze-dried food.
Please make sure you also feed them some vegetation in the diet.
However, Endler guppies are prone to obesity, so you shouldn't overfeed them.
