The last strain we produced from a natural occurring variation was our Snakeskin Orchid Endler. The Snakeskin Orchid Endler has lots of flashy colors and patterns with elongated fins.
Unlike the Snakeskin Orchid Endler, our latest strain developed from a single male from our N Class Orchid Endler population is quite different. It’s a much more simple strain with only two colors, orange and black.
We’ve been working on this strain for several months and hope to have a few available for sale by the fall of 2017.
So far the strain usually produces males that are just a little bit smaller than our regular Orchid Endlers.
At this time the Endlers are producing two different color variations. One with a “black belt” (a vertical line in the middle of the body) and one without the black belt.
We are working to fine tune the strain so that eventually only the black belt version is produced. Time will tell if our efforts will be rewarded or not.
This strain was produced using a similar method of inbreeding and line breeding that we used to produce our Snakeskin Orchid Endler strain. Like the Snakeskin Orchid Strain we intend to continue to work on this strain potentially for as long as we have it in an attempt to make the strain as beautiful as we can possibly make it.
We hope you will like this new strain as much as we do!
