The most active of the common livebearers, swordtails hold their own with other community fish. Males have the long “sword” extending from the bottom of their tails. Swordtails prefer a degree of salinity in their water and adding one teaspoon of aquarium salt per two gallons of water is highly recommended. A well planted tank with plenty of swimming space is ideal. The Red Swordtail is a brilliant red color.”
