The differnt colour forms tend to be in different creeks - with the
differences due to maturity being evident in the same creek. However in
large river systems with very widely separated tributaries collecting from
very different habitats there are often differences between tributaries. The
fish from the smaller upper tributaries are often the best coloured - often
the water parameters hers are more specialised too. As we catch them further
down into the larger syreams they tend to become less distinctive.
Watch your guppies for signs of fin damage (from the Gambusia as they are
notorious fin-nippers ) and this often develops fungus afterwards.I agree
with Peter, the list exists for the exchange of information, as do clubs,
libraries and the web.
