I just started breeding all kinds of fish. Sword Tails are the easiest by far! I have 2 oranges and the mother had all orange but 1 white came out also.

Blue swordtails are actualy a blue wag and and swordtail cross ("beautiful fish" is one of the only ways to describe it).
I have a small 10 gallon tank but my 15 swordtails (around that much, adults and babies combined), 1 leopard pleco, and (at least) 110 mystery snails are all happy and have learned their feeding schedule. I'm going to get a bigger tank once I have room to house more fish and hopefully get a second pleco so my plecos might breed.

I raise a combination of clear (almost white) albino swords crossed with lyertail reds (Lyertail Red females X Albino clear males). As the process is slow, can you tell me more of the blue swordtails Josh / or anyone else. I need more variances to deal with. The blue intrigues me.

My brother has just got 3 red sword tails. They are friendly with the other fish but do sometimes fin-nip the red dwarf gouramis.

I have a one-year old female swordtail (without a male) and believe it or not she had young ones!! I am wondering how this can happen, or it swordtails breed with other different species of fish who would be the father.
