The Black Koi Guppy is one of many unique varieties of Poecilia reticulata guppy developed through years of careful, selective breeding. Though guppies are typically known for their vibrant coloration, the male Black Koi  Guppy features a vibrant red-orange coloration on the dorsal fin, tail fin and sometimes face. The body color varies from dark blue to black.
