    Thats cool - I actually saw an endler/swordtail looking mix at petco the other day. I didnt know what to call it and it was sold under guppy but had a distinct neon blue and a long half inch sword tail.

    That would have been neat to see, did it look like the picture below.



    These were sold on Aquabid some time ago as Japanese blue swordtail guppies.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

    Ah! I see that one - and that is very close - the tail didnt stick down but straight out the back. Coloring is spot on so I would assume same fish with a different placement of the sword?

    It's a neat fish. I have had Japanese blue guppies, but I have never seen a swordtail one. When I did a google search for a picture there were many different sorts of swords on the little guys lol. So I am thinking you are right, same fish, different placement.
