Blue Grass are famous for their large dorsal and caudal fin with unique black speckles. The speckles are dense and well-distributed. That makes the fins look like grass. So, this strain got its famous name “Grass”.
The guppy stands the dorsal fin like a sail and swings its caudal fin rhythmically, just like a sapphire in the ocean, deep and mysterious. The speckles make it special, and the blue make it everlasting.
In the 1960s, Gerhard Gellrich who from Frankfurt, Germany developed one sensational Guppy strain, called Half-Black Yellow. Base on its unexpected body colors and touching posture, this strain won many champions in Europe. From then on, Half-Black Yellow headed to the world and step on a continued developing road. The German developed the Half-Black White strain. The American added US style into it and developed a Taxi Yellow strain. It has larger size and purer yellow fins.
