Sometimes referred to as Koi Swordtails, Kohaku Swordtail are highly ornamental and easily identified by their vivid orange and transparent white koi-like coloration. A showy fish, both males and females are attention-getting, and males have the added distinction of the swordtail feature.
Kohaku Swordtails are active. In their natural environment, they make their homes in rapidly flowing streams and rivers, and because of this active nature, we recommend a tank size of twenty gallons or more with a secured cover.
With a peaceful temperament, Kohaku Swordtails are easy to keep, but males can get territorial and exhibit some aggression toward one another, so care should be taken to monitor or separate them.
Kohaku Swordtails are omnivores who like vegetated environments and are at home in freshwater environments. They feed on commercially prepared flaked foods and algae as well as freeze dried bloodworms, tubifex, and brine shrimp.
