Overview

Looking for a great starter pack of Swordtail? The LiveAquaria® Premium BOOMER Plant Safe Freshwater Fish Pack offers a nice variety of Xiphophorus helleri Swordtail. This pack includes the Pineapple Swordtail, with its vibrant shades of red and orange, the Neon Swordtail, aptly named for its exciting electric coloration, and Red Wag Swordtail, boasting a bold red and black color combination. This pack will be sure to please.

These Swordtail require an aquarium of at least 20 gallons that is well planted with plenty of room for swimming. Because of their peaceful nature, these Swordtail are well suited for the community aquarium. However, the male Swordtail can demonstrate territorial aggression towards other male Swordtails so care should be taken when housing more than one male. Also, the Swordtail is an accomplished jumper, so be sure to provide a secure cover for the aquarium.

These Swordtail are live-bearing fish related to freshwater aquarium favorites including guppies, mollies, and platys. As such, a female Swordtail can give birth to as many as 80 fry at one time. A spawning box is recommended, or if one is not available, provide dense floating cover to protect the Swordtail fry from potential predation by the adults. Unless it is your intention to breed Swordtail, the male Swordtail fry should be separated once the sex of the fry is determined. The Swordtail can begin breeding as young as three months of age and can quickly overpopulate an aquarium. These Swordtail are omnivore that will eat commercially prepared flaked foods and algae, as well as freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and brine shrimp.
