The Red Wag Swordtail demonstrates a classic color combination notable among the widely bred color varieties of the Xiphophorus helleri Swordtail. The bold color combination of red and black gives the Red Wag Swordtail a sophisticated appearance. The Swordtail is perhaps the quintessential community aquarium fish. The time-tested popularity of the Swordtail can be attributed to its ease of care, peaceful temperament, and wonderfully diverse fin and color varieties. The most common Swordtail varieties include: Red Velvet, Marigold, Black Nubian, Pineapple, and Neon Swordtail. The male Swordtail is especially prized for its namesake feature, the showy extension on the lower part of its tail resembling a sword.

Both of my longest resident red wag platies were raised from baby fish (fry) that their mother gave birth to in the tank. Note that if you want toraise the fry you will need to move them to a breeding trap within the tank or other fish may eat them. Red Wag Platys (fresh water fish)
