(Xiphphorus Hellerii)

Swordtails are medium sized livebearers that make excellent community fish. They come in many different colours from blue to red and yellow. The mails have sword like fin extensions on their tails - hence the name. They are generally peaceful but males may fight with each other if kept in small aquariums. They like plants and should be kept in a medium sized to large aquarium with one male per every two or three females. Females may give birth regularly and broods can be as large as 200 fry.
