Males are distinguished by the long "sword" on their tails. Females have a fan shaped anal fin, with males longer in length than females. Generally not a shoaling fish but do prefer to be in groups, they are generally peaceful, but males can become aggressive with each other. Keep at least two females per male to keep the males from fighting. As livebearers, they breed readily in the tank environment without much encouragement!
They will eat most fish foods including flakes, frozen, freeze dried and live foods such as brine shrimp.
The Swordtail is an extremely hardy fish that can adapt to a wide range of water conditions favouring water with a temperature range of 21.1-25.6°C (70 -78 °F).
