The Tiger Endler or Poecilia Wingei is famous for its neon yellow coloring and intricate patterns. Similar to a common guppy, this yellow Endler only grows to between one and two inches making it ideal for nano aquariums, however be mindful of mixed-sex groups as they are prolific breeders!
The Tiger Endler is suited for beginner and experienced aquarists thanks to their hardy nature, friendly temperament, and ease of care. Small and conveniently sized, they can thrive in both small and large tanks and are safe to pair with other peaceful fish - their floaty tail can be a target for nipping fish so be sure to avoid these types.
Endlers are highly active, friendly fish who love to investigate their surroundings and could disturb other docile tankmates. Their inquisitive nature and active lifestyle make them fun to observe and enjoyable to keep. The Tiger Endler is best kept with groups as a naturally schooling fish and looks particularly impressive when swimming as a unit thanks to their vibrant colors.
Native to South America, the Tiger Endler prefers a heavily planted aquarium with a sandy substrate filled with lush flora and floating plants to provide comfortable hiding spots. Endlers typically occupy the top level of the tank but enjoy swimming in the open water, so provide enough space for activity. Endlers aren’t afraid to jump, so be sure to fit a tight lid in case they decide to escape.
We feed our fish a mix of frozen, live and prepared foods including live baby brine and black worms. We also supplement their diet with a mix of Northfin Veggie, Community and Bug Pro.
I've purchased two batches of fish. The first time the fish were shipped male and female together and one of the males died, the second time they came shipped separately and they all arrived healthy.
Great fish, however they don't play well with baby shrimp 😋.
The Endlers all arrived in good shape, well packaged, with no issues at all. One week later, the fish are doing great in my community tank.
Fish arrived on time and in good health. If you’re looking for a nano fish that has a huge visual presence then tiger endler is a great choice.
