Yes it did but like we had a debate a few weeks ago about coloring and the environment now that they are in a tank with bright lights they are starting to fade. The pond has a black lining so they get darker in there. I have the same thing with the guppy females.

They are probably five times bigger. I put only one in the same container that they were in for the first picture because they wouldn't both fit in it. LOL

nice. that is somehing to me more than the color. the color will often change with the enviroment but the size that is cool. did you happen to raise some in a tank as well and if so how does it s size compare.

I do have some that are tank raised and about the same age. Not siblings but they are only about half this size and the cool thing is I think they are a pair. They are now in a 20g tank at our store so I'm watching them closely to see if they start any spawning signs.

I would say yes to that. In the pond they are free to eat all day long on bugs and microscopic organisms. I have the same thing happen with the females guppies. They get huge in fact I just sold some to a lady that said she had never seen guppies that big. Here is a picture of a female that spent the summer in the pond. Also the platys get the size of a small goldfish. Even bigger then the guppies.
