Actually the Old Fashion Mosaic is not really an “antique” mosaic but a new strain believed to be originated from East Germany.

The Old Fashion Mosaic has a metal body and the caudal and dorsal are far more wide spread. It is also believed that the life span of the Old Fashion series is longer than the normal guppy. The Old Fashion series also takes more than 5 months to fully color up.

Sometimes, the body pattern may have a mixture of snakeskin pattern but this can be determined by looking at the caudal pattern, and the body may also have some black pigment which is different from the snakeskin.

If the caudal base color is dark green and have some red dots, it is also commonly termed as Fireworks.

The name Mosaic came from the Japan. It is believed that Mosaic was imported from Germany to Japan in early 1960. In the process of cross breeding the Tuxedo and the wild type, resulted in Mosaic.

Mosaic has bigger inter connected dots on it’s caudal and dorsal fins. It also has larger caudal and dorsal fins. One of the characteristics of Mosaic is that there usually has a tint of blue at the part where the caudal joins the penducle.

The female Mosaic is very similar to the female Grass in terms of the caudal pattern. Most female Mosaic has an enlongated upper caudal fin.
