The El Tigre Endler or Poecilia Wingei is famous for its neon yellow, green, and red orange 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 El Tigre 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 El Tigre 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 El Tigre 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.
This is little beautiful fish! I got a pair! It is perfect for my nano aqurium. The male has bright colors and female has pale green color. Fishes acclimated quickly and it looks the female is carrying the eggs now, hopefully I will have a little fry soon. There is a male endler on my photo
The fish arrived very healthy and took the new environment like champs. After a short water adjustment quarantine they integrated well into my little el tigre endler colony.
