N Class Snakeskin Orchid Endlers

Snakeskin Orchid Endlers for Sale

This beautiful & unique N Class Endler strain was developed right here at OrchidEndlers.com by Marty Andersen.

This is NOT A HYBRID but a unique, genetically pure strain.  

This strain was created using a process of inbreeding, line breeding and a continual process of selective breeding using a naturally occurring variation which we found in one of our N Class Orchid Endler males.

Young males look nearly identical to the original Orchid Endlers and the snake pattern develops and intensifies as the males age.

I ordered my trio of Snakeskin Orchid Endlers and WOW these are beautiful. Worth every cent and you can count on quality from this company. I spent many hours researching and speaking with different Endler breeders, and ended up choosing the ‘Orchid Endlers’ company because of #1) The quality of their fish, and just as important #2) Their customer service is second to none! You can definitely feel confident with ordering; you will be well taken care of based on my experience.

I received my sizeable order of Snakeskin Orchid Endlers about a month ago now. The fish I received are healthy large and stunningly beautiful fish…..After keeping fish for most of entire life of 60+ years I never kept Endlers before..I’ve had it all and I have to say these Endlers are really COOL! Under a Finnex MonsterRay light they look like swimming beacons in the water from across the room…I am just blown away…It is probably a good thing that these folks are out of stock on most Endlers right now or I would have to spend a bunch more ...

The Orchid Endlers are absolutely stunning; you won’t be disappointed. And just as important, customer service and all questions are always answered promptly and with great detail. I shopped around carefully before making any purchase, and wouldn’t order Endlers from any other company. I was very impressed.

WOW! OMG! OMG! I can't believe it. My friend met the mailman today and when I got home all my fish were in my tank... I even have 5 babies! She said the water was clear and everything.

Included in my order of Snakeskin Endlers were 3 trios. Everything I said in my review of the pairs is applicable here. Awesome beautiful fish! Marty knows what he is doing here….Excellent shipping and strong healthy fish….I previously ordered two other types of Endlers from another supplier and while they will be quite nice after I fatten them up a bit they pale in comparison to Marty’s fish…2 thumbs up!

I am so enjoying these little fish!My fish arrived well packed and very healthy, with a bonus bag of endler fry. They settled into my aquarium with no trouble, and truly, within just a couple of hours the colors of the males had brightened back up.They’re very active, and the males do tend to school a bit. They’re already displaying to the females, and one sassy little fellow is courting a small neon tetra.Thank you so much!

I just received these today and couldn’t be happier! They’re not easy to find and I’ve been waiting a long time for them to go on sale. They got here in less than two days and were packed very well. Can’t wait to get more! Thanks again!

My fish arrived, and I am delighted! I'm spending way too much time watching them swim around. The males are already displaying to the females, and even to the smallest neon tetra! The fry were a lovely bonus, too. I had a 10 gal tank set up for a betta, but I haven't put one in yet; so it was perfect for the fry.

Our fish are shipped out on Friday so your fish arrive at your location on Monday except when Friday or Monday is a holiday.

Endlers for Sale

Not only do we offer N Class Orchid Endlers for sale, we also have other N Class or Pure Endlers such as N Class Lime Green Endler’s and Blue Star Endlers for sale.

Unlike others that offer Endlers for sale, OrchidEndlers.com carefully controls our breeding stock giving us the abillity to control coloration and fin lengths.

We can do this because we don’t use massive outdoor breeding ponds or huge holding tanks to breed our fish.  Our fish are raised indoors away from parasites and diseases that are spread by wild animals.

Our N Class Snakeskin Orchid Endler strain is a strain that was developed exclusively by us from a single male variation or mutation.  We continue to watch for other unique variation to offer in the future.

Our newest Endlers are pure Blue Star Endlers.  They are the first Endlers we have to offer from the Campoma region.

We are really excited to be able to offer these gorgeous pure Blue Star Endlers here in the United States.  Quantities are limited for this highly sought after Endler however we are working to produce enough to meet the demand.

Pure Wild Stock N Class Endler’s Livebearers

Endler’s Livebearers (Poecilia wingei), sometimes called Endler’s Guppies are closely related to guppies (Poecilia reticulata). They are so closely related that Endler’s can easily cross breed with guppies and produce fertile hybrid offspring.

If you happen to find Endlers at your local pet shop they are very likely to be hybrids.  Even in the unlikely event that the local pet shop was able to get pure N class Endlers they usually have difficulty keeping them away from other livebearers and end up with hybrids or females that have been exposed to guppies or mollies.

Once a female Endler has been exposed to a male guppy the female can produce several drops of hybrid fry even if they are never again exposed to another male guppy.

Local pet shops also have a difficult time providing documentation showing where the Endlers originated and linking them back to the original Endlers brought back from Venezuela.  This documentation is very important if you ever wish to offer your Endlers to others as N Class Endlers.

There have been some wonderful looking Endler/Guppy hybrids produce in recent years and due to the number of strains of both Endler’s and guppies there is likely to be many other fantastic looking hybrids produced in the future.

There are some who believe that Endlers and Guppies are destine to become one and the same as they are allowed to hybridize over the years.

Why make sure that you have pure wild stock Endler’s?

Great care has been taken to help preserve the pure genetics of Endler’s Livebearers of the unique qualities of this beautiful tropical fish as well as the rarity of Endler’s in the wild.

There have even been rumors that some pure strains of Endler’s may be extinct in the wild.  While there are still Endlers being captured in the wild, many of the new strains found are believed to be wild Endler/Guppy hybrids.

This is because much of the wild Endler habit now contains a population of wild guppies making cross breeding likely.

Endlers Colors

Endler’s usually have wonderful metallic colors on them. Green is the most common metallic color however there are also purples, blues, yellows and other colors. Another trait that is often found in Endlers is the bright orange or red colors that they have. This color is often very bright resembling the color hunter orange used by hunters to help improve their visibility.

Class K Endler vs. Class N Endler

Once a guppy is crossed with an Endler the offspring can never be pure Endler’s and are known as K class Endler’s.

These hybrids can produce beautiful results and may have traits that are associated both with Endlers and Guppies.  If you are interested in purchasing Class K Endlers (Endler Hybrids) they can be found at HybridEndler.com.

Our goal is to provide hobbyists with the best quality pure Endler’s available. We take great care to ensure our pure N Class Endler’s keep their pure genetics and we work hard to maintain great coloration by maintaining pure genetics and careful control of our breeding stock.

N Class vs. Wild Type

Just because an Endler is classified as N Class doesn’t necessarily mean that the strain can be found in the wild.  N Class simply means that the Endler is genetically pure or “pure Endler” and that the strain can be traced back to it’s origin in Venezuela.

There are many strains of N Class Endlers that while genetically pure they are not found in the wild.  An example of this would be our Snakeskin Orchid Endlers.  Other examples of N Class Endlers that are not found in the wild are Top Yellow Sword, Top Bar Red Endler, Snake Top Bar, Top Blue Sword and White Peacock Endlers.

There are also several strains of Endlers that are found in the wild that are not pure Endlers as they have naturally hybridized with wild guppies.  Many of the Campoma Endlers discovered after 2007 are believed to have some guppy genes in them due to natural hybridization.

Register as an N Class Endler Breeder / Keeper

When you purchase a minimum of 3 pairs of one strain of Endlers from us you have the opportunity to become a registered Breeder / Keeper.  This makes it easy for you to share the N Class status of your Endlers.  All you have to do is request to be added to the registry at the time you order.

Why Keep Endler’s Livebearers

Sometimes referred to as Endler’s Guppies, Endler’s Livebearers are easy to care for and can even do well in small tanks and fish bowls.

It is recommended that the tanks or bowls have a lid and a heater at a minimum and to include only males to prevent the tank from being overrun by young Endlers.

Endler’s (Poecilia wingei) are quite fun to watch as they are quite active and will swim throughout all levels of the tank. The males spend most of their time courting the females.

Because the males are so relentless to the females it’s best to have more females than males or keep only males if you don’t desire to have breeding take place.

Although closely related to the guppy, pure Endlers have a look and personality that’s all their own. Male Endlers are typically smaller than Fancy Guppies with a bright coloration that has somewhat of a metallic look.

The most common colors found in Endlers are green, orange and black however they may also have purple, blue, red, yellow and other colors.

Male Orchid Endler's Livebearer

Some Differences between Endlers and Guppies

The male Endlers don’t have the long flowing delta tails that are seen on most Fancy Guppies in pet shops today however they may have a small sword on the tail depending on the strain.

This “sword” is usually just a coloration on the tail fin rather than a true sword. Some males may develop swords that are actual swords extending slightly beyond the tail fin.

Due to our selective breeding process many of our male Endlers have swords that are much longer sword than normal.

Male Fancy Guppies don’t usually have swordtails however hybrid crosses between Endlers and guppies often result in males with long flowing swordtails.

The intensity of the colors vary depending on their health, living conditions, and of course genetics. Endlers that are left to breed uncontrollably may tend to produce offspring that have washed out colors over time.

Controlled breeding is important if you desire to have the brightest, most colorful Endlers possible.

Caring for Endlers

Endlers are easy to care for and breed quite prolifically. As long as the tank is not over populated and there is plenty of hiding places for the young the fry will not normally be eaten by the adult Endlers with the exception of the very large older female Endlers.

For best coloration Endlers love lots of live plants in their environment and their tank should have a partial water change (1/3) every 2 -3 weeks. Small amounts of food should be given to the Enders several times a day if possible with a minimum of twice a day.

Never feed your Endlers more than they can eat in 2-3 minutes at a time. Just about any high quality flake food will do fine. You may wish to crush up the flakes to make it more palatable to your Endlers.  Learn more:   Feeding Your Endlers for Color & Health.

Endlers will survive in a wide range of temperatures but will not tolerate cold temperatures so an aquarium heater is required if the room temperatures ever drop below 65 deg. F.

Overall the Endlers Livebearer is one of the easiest aquarium fish you may have the pleasure of owning. They are active and beautiful. They are generally peaceful and should get along with most other peaceful tropical fish.

New Strains We’re Working On

We are always looking for new variations that we feel would be a nice addition to our Endler offerings.  Variations are naturally occurring mutations which occur as part of the evolutionary process.

In the wild this process can take hundreds or even thousands of years however because Endlers have offspring so often and grow to adulthood quickly the process can be happen much more quickly than it can with other animals.

In a controlled environment we can speed up the process with selective breeding.  By doing so we can select the traits that we wish to emphasize or make somewhat permanent in the strain.  We can also use the same process to remove traits that we find unattractive or undesirable.

Our most recent strain was developed from an N Class Orchid Endler that had a unique variation that we developed into the Snakeskin Orchid Endler strain.

We have been working on several strains of Endlers that have longer than usual swordtails.  However we have not been able to develop any of these beautiful fish into consistently producing strains as of yet.  This is something we intend to continue to work on as we feel they are very beautiful.

So far we have produced the following strains with extra long swordtails; Orchid Endlers, Lime Green Endlers, Snakeskin Orchid Endlers and Blue Star Endlers.

We are also currently working on our own line of pure N Class Blond Orchid Endlers as we were fortunate enough to have a couple of males born with this unique variation.

Another strain we are currently working on is a variation of the Snakeskin Orchid Endler which has no sword tail, with peacock markings on the tail and a large red stripe down the body.  It’s a very unique look that we hope to selectively breed until we can consistently produce this beautiful fish.

There are many things that must be worked out when it comes to developing Endler strains and Endler genetics that there are no guarantees that these will ever become lines that we would be able to offer however after a few years of work or possibly sooner we may be fortunate enough to have produced one of these strains.
