If you got babies, try to choose those not so dirty males to breed and you might get more of the "cleaner" offsprings.
Take time

Take time
The female I posted the picture of had 22 fry 3 weeks ago. At least that was how many were there after I got home and found her trying to eat them. I was buzzing. It was on her fry that I started to see the dirty look on some, and not others. Luckily the ones that I would cull for deformities have the dirty look... maybe on the same gene?

'dirty' around mouth... could belong to the below scenario:

i once had my lfs guppies in a algae-infested tank (didn't wash the tank for weeks.. that was well before i got serious abt keeping guppy).
i cleaned the tank one day, most of them lost their bright colour and put on a coating of algae on their bodies even their mouths. it's stubbornly stained, i dont think you could remove it in a short period of time. i think can't... never saw that happened

so my suspicion is that your tank is dirty?

Nope clean as a whistle. I am a little bit of a neat-a-phobic. Sorry . There isn't too much natural light where my tanks are placed anyway (I was told to keep them away from sunlight), so not too much has developed. Thanks for the help though
