Swordtail aka Xiphophorus Hellerii


Origin: Central America
Temperature: 64 - 81
PH: 7.0 - 8.3
Maximum Size: 5 inches
Temperment: Peaceful community fish, livebearer

Very peaceful community fish, unless your a female swordtail, then be prepared to have any males stuck onto you like siamese twins in a swimming pool! Easy to care for and beautiful orange coloring make the swordtails a begginner favorite. Fry will be eaten by the parents, but many will survive in a well planted tank. The swordtail fry are adorable.
