Swordtail pairs  If you order one that contains Hi-Fin, only one of the pair will have the Hi-Fin. The other will be Standard. In double dose, Hi-Fin is a lethal gene, so it's always best to cross a Hi-Fin with a Standard.

The swordtail fish that we ship are between 3 and 8 months old.

We are many years into this project.  The goal was to increase size and vigor in domestic swordtail fish.  (see project outline in our Blog).  We crossed 2 wild Xiphophorus species into a domestic line and then separated the offspring into various strains by color. We then selectively bred for size and traits that we like and have been amazed at the size we are obtaining at this stage. By far the largest adult swordtail fish we've ever seen - simply magnificent fish.  These fish may carry other genes, like hi-fin, various albino combinations,  patterns like Koi, Neon, Green, White and maybe even others, so getting a few varieties in the offspring is common.

The Tuxedo swordtail type was developed from both wild fish and Red Alpha swordtail strains. The color is orange, not red, though some of the offspring will be more reddish than others, so you can select for that. Video showing some of the Tuxedo swordtail strain below:

The below video is an example of swordtails and angelfish getting along fine together. There is never any interaction between the two.

Ruby Red Swordtails - We are now offering the ruby red sword, which has the color in all its fins and it tends to be more intense than any other swordtail.


Piebald Swordtails: This is a rarely seen variety. They are a combination of a bluish-grey and reddish-orange color, randomly distributed on the body. This piebald trait gives great variety in the expression of these colors.
