Product Description

I feel like this strain is the same as the German White Platinum but with the double recessive ribbon gene added. Only time will tell as this strain is new to us as of August 2020. This strain has albino eyes and is a transparent milky white color with a gorgeous sky blue tail and some males and females have the long ribbon fin gene.


Ribbon Fin Gene Warning: Breeding ribbon guppies is not for beginners. These are not as simple to breed as other strains. A Male with a long gonopodium (ribbon) can't mate with a female. This is due to the length of their gonopodium (penis) being so long that they can't hold it erect and hit the targeted female. Ribbon Fin males are only for your viewing pleasure. To breed a Ribbon Fin line you will need a regular finned male and a Ribbon finned female. When the two are bred together you still will not have ribbon fry. Thats right, none of the babies you produce will show a Ribbon. You will get all regular finned guppies with 25% Normal Male, 25% Normal Male carrying the ribbon gene but not showing a Ribbon fin, 25% Normal females, and 25% normal females carrying the ribbon gene but not showing it. You will need to mate the fry to each other in brother and sister pairs and hope that the male and female you paired both have the recessive ribbon gene. If the pair produces all normals you have either chosen one or both normals as parents. One could still be carrying ribbon fin but because the other wasn't carrying it none of the offspring will be ribbons, some will be carriers If one parent carried the ribbon gene. You can test the male again with another female but the mother is now producing fry from that male for 6 months or so. BIf not done properly you can lose the ribbon gene quickly in a couple of generations and have regular finned guppies. That is why if you want ribbon finned guppies for a display tank it's best to just order ribbon finned males and not try breeding.
