LiveAquaria® is excited to offer the Premium "SELTZER" Plant Safe Freshwater Fish Pack. This sparkling new pack includes (4) each of the following Swordtail: Red Mickey Mouse, Marigold Wag, and Pineapple. This glowing variety of fish will provide a vibrant burst of eye-catching color to any tropical community.
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.
