Red Swordtails

Swordtails (Xiphophorus helleri) are larger livebearers in the same genus as Platies. Reaching about 3-5" in length, they require more space than many livebearers, but make up for it with high activity levels and the gorgeous "swords" that males possess on the tailfin. Like other livebearers, we recommend at least 2-3 females per male, so the males don't wear them out with constant breeding attempts.

This is a mixed batch of solid red and red wag (orange with black fins) swordtails. They range in size from about 2" to 4" in the largest females.
