Received my pair of red brick yesterday. I am impressed by their body size and color, especially the male swordtail. He is a wild monster!
Excellent quality. Male's swords not fully developed but have large bodies for sword development stage which indicates large bodies at maturity.
The angelfish and the tuxedo swordtails arrived in perfect condition and all were beautiful. But the swordtails were spectacular!! We do not see swordtails like this at stores in NYC anymore! They are well worth the price. Can you offer them for sale as trios?
I ordered 4 pairs of the "red bricks", not expecting to get the original, now virtually extinct, strain, but hoping for good quality, robust fish. I wasn't disappointed. I'm especially pleased with 2 of the males, as they're very robust, high-shouldered fish that haven't even fully matured. Once full grown, those 2 males will be huge! I believe that one of the wild Xiphophorus species crossed into this line is X. mayae, which would explain the size.
These are the most vigorous swords I've ever had. Also the biggest!
