Top Quality Championship Strains Available.
Albino solid red juvenile
Thank-you for visiting our website!
We are proudly Canadian whose fish roots stem back to the early 1960`s when this fascination with breeding and showing these beautiful fish began. At that time guppies didn`t look anything like they do now. Through many years of selective breeding by many dedicated "old time" true guppy hobbyists, they have become the freshwater jewels of the fish world they are today.
We are both retired now and are full time breeder/hobbyists that focus on raising our fish for - not for quantity and we strive to improve each generation with tried and true
selective breeding practises.
Although we are currently not showing in the IFGA circuit due to some major health issues for both of us, this unfortunately keeps us north of the border and closer to home but we continue to raise our guppies with the same passion and commitment.
Now 50 + years of dedication in this hobby speaks volumes for the health and quality of the fish that we have produced in the past and continue to produce today.
Over several decades, some of our IFGA guppy strains have originated from award winning Stan Schubel and Gary Mousseau lines and we also acquired and raise some spectacular varieties from some top award winning Asian lines. Some of these Asian strains feature the high dorsal or "half thumb" shaped dorsals. Although these dorsal shapes do not conform with IFGA show standards, they conform in every other aspect and are recognized show quality throughout Asia. These are truly spectacular in their own right. We enjoy working with these to bring their standard up to meet North American standards.
We work constantly with improving all of our lines and integrate several compatible strains together to create some of the best quality bred pure breeding lines around. By selectively breeding, this creates a more diverse gene pool and the fish are stronger and healthier for it.
Most fish we offer for sale are between 3 + and 5 months of age depending on growth rates of certain strains.
We generally do not sell fish younger than 3 months old as these are too young to assess for quality and we do not sell culls as breeding stock.
All of our fish are also deltas. We do not breed any veils.
Some of our strains are available from time to time in 2 lines. This is extremely useful in line breeding and removes the uncertainty of the introduction of complete outcrosses in most cases; albino strains and black Moscows being the exception. Our fish are healthy, raised in a disease free environment and many are ranked amongst some of the best quality anywhere.
If it`s top quality, well bred fish you are looking for then look no further because that`s all we breed!
There are poor quality reds, good quality reds
and then there is the BEST quality reds.
This stunning line of pure RREA albino solid reds
are , not orange like other lines, but brilliant
intense red. Reputed to be one of the best lines in the
world and I won`t argue that fact. We have
worked hard over the past few years and have
managed to deepened the colour even further.
These are a medium sized fish with fantastic finnage,
colour and conformation. Females grow large and
produce large numbers of fry.
A very hardy and prolific line.
Beautiful line of albino sky blues. Great even pastel
colour on dorsal and caudal. This line breeds well and
produces large batches of fry
RREA albino solid red female
This champion strain is probably from the best line of 1/2 black yellows known. Top multi year winners several years in a row on the IFGA show bench for Gary Mousseau. Large body size with beautiful yellow colouration, great conformation and a hardy prolific breeder. Females are also large and fantastic body shape and excellent colour and produce large batches of healthy fry. This line also produces a small percentage of gold bodied 1/2 black yellows. A definite bonus!
One of the best lines of yellows anywhere ever.

Brilliant emerald green in colour and large body size when mature. Spectacular colouration throughout the entire body- head to tail. Females are large and have wonderful body conformation. One of our favourite strains for sure! You can see why...
These are NOT Moscows. Bar none, these are some of the best greens available anywhere! Breeds true.
Champion purple snakeskins deltas were ranked a multi year winning line and originated long ago from Gary Mousseau line. These are a very large bodied fish with rich purple colour and carry massive tails. Females are large and truly outstanding in size and conformation. This strain has extreme longevity in their genes. We have some in a display tank that are almost 3 years old and still going strong! We did very well showing this line in the past.

This superior IFGA show quality line of our black-eyed Moscow deltas are truly outstanding. This young adult male has just grown into his fins and the photos show how solid the colouration is. They are a medium sized fish with deep velvety black colour with absolutely spectacular long flowing dorsal & super wide caudal.This line also throws a percentage of super deltas! They have a slightly slower growth rate as most all black strains do but more than make up for it in beauty and quality. Females are large and have beautiful conformation. Unlike many other black lines, this line is extremely fertile due to selective outcrossing.

While other breeders do not show the females they use in their breeding program, we feel it is equally important to display the photos of our beautiful quality female breeders as it is to show our exquisite breeder males.

Aquarium forums are wonderful sites with many dedicated breeders of all kinds of livestock. Kijiji is a great place to advertise but unfortunately there are some individuals who practise deception in their sales tactics on some sites claiming false and misleading information and taking photos off of the internet or another breeder`s websites to sell their fish. If you can`t trust the authenticity of the photos that you are replying on when purchasing quality guppies, you just may not get the same fish you are paying for. Reputable guppy breeders take pride in their personal photos and have a great aversion to those who commit photo piracy and make false claims regarding the lineage or origin of their fish. All are highly unethical practices and a poor way to do business.
My advise for what it is worth to anybody who reads this is to do some reasearch before your purchase to avoid disappointment.

OUR FEEDING AND MAINTENENCE SCHEDULE
We feed a variety of foods to our fish to promote health and growth. Our fish are fed freshly hatched live baby brine shrimp 2 x`s per day and premium quality dry foods several times throughout the day. Dry foods we use such as salmon and spirulina etc. are enriched with Omega 3 & 6 and vitamins. De-capsulated brine shrimp eggs are also fed as well as our exclusive Pro Master growth formula. A 52 % animal based protein food.
Fry and juveniles are fed sparingly but often to keep bellies full as often as possible. Quite simply, they grow faster.
Water changes are done 2 times per week to maintain water quality. All guppies need good, clean quality water- especially the big males. We use corner box filters in our tanks and these are cleaned on a monthly basis. All tanks are bare bottom for ease of maintenence and kept as clean as possible.

Most all of our individual fish photos are taken under natural daylight conditions with a flash. As all blues, greens and purples are reflective colours, they can show some slight variance in colour due to the effects of fluorescent or incandescent lighting and different water parameters.
We are proud of the photos we have produced to date although there is always great room for improvement. It is difficult, time consuming and very often frustrating working with a small, live and very uncooperative moving target and many hours are spent to get maybe one decent picture that is useable. We try to update photos with better ones as often as we can. All copyright photos under CQG`s logo are exclusively our personal photos of our established working breeding lines NONE of which are fraudulently copied off the internet or pirated off another breeder`s website so you can purchase your fish with 100% complete confidence all guppy pairs or trios sold by Canadian Quality Guppies are all direct blood descendant's of the fish pictured below ( and in some cases even tank-mates) and represent our quality.
