LFS had Endlers and wild guppies!
Very cool, that's the first time I've seen them.
They were slightly more expensive than the other guppies, they must be a little harder to obtain.
Boy, were they TINY!!! Makes the other guppies look like monstrous mutants. You can really see how far breeding has separated fancy guppies from their wild cousins.
I didn't end up getting any, I think my colossal giant guppies (by comparison) would pick on them.

Aggression would more likely be in the other direction; wild guppies are more energetic than domesticated stock, and more competetive when trying to mate with available females. They wouldn't do any real harm, but would be more likely to breed successfully than the domestic males.

Huh! That's pretty cool.
I'm keeping all males anyway, so there won't be any successful mating going on. Although they always try!
