This fish has all of the qualities of an ideal nano fish: beautiful color, peaceful nature, and hardy health!

The Black Bar Endler’s Livebearer (Poecilia wingei) is an extremely colorful, peaceful fish whose small size makes it absolutely perfect for the nano or planted aquarium.  This fish is very similar to the larger common guppy (Poecilia reticulata).  It is very hardy, especially for such a small fish.

Endlers typically occupy the top level of the water column, although they can often be seen swimming and feeding in the middle and bottom levels as well.  They are also not afraid to jump, so they must be kept in an aquarium with either a lid/hood/canopy or at least a significantly lowered water level.  They will not eat or bother plants.   They are safe with other peaceful fish as long as the other fish are not known to nip at the long tail of the endler.  Adult dwarf shrimp are generally safe as well, but endlers may eat shrimp fry.  Larger, peaceful invertebrates can also make good tankmates.  Endlers are best kept in groups.

While not a picky eater, the Black Bar Endler’s Livebearer will thrive and remain very colorful on a varied diet of meaty foods supplemented with spirulina or other nutritious vegetable matter.  High-quality and flake food, pellets, and frozen or freeze-dried tubifex and bloodworms will all be readily accepted.

Shipping Schedule for this service

Current Handling Time:

1-9 business days

Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

Shipping Rate

Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
