The Swordtail is a great addition to a peaceful community aquarium! Often mistaken for guppies, the swordtail is a good choice for a beginner aquarium. The colours can vary, with shades of orange, red and silvers. Native to South America, the Swordtail likes to live in a group of at least 3 others and are another easy to breed species. If breeding is not for you, then we recommend you purchase either all females or all males. They can live alongside other species, but they should not be in an aquarium with any fin nipping fish.
