Overview

Pink Comet Swordtails make a great addition to your freshwater aquarium because of their active nature and unique coloring. Their pearly pink bodies are highlighted by orange fins and black streaks along the top and bottom of their tail fins (in males, the lower black streak is visible on the bottom of their distinctive swordtail). Pink Comet Swordtails will add immediate visual interest to your underwater environment.

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.

This stock is an easy choice for those who want to build an interesting environment quickly. With a peaceful temperament, Pink Comet Swordtails grow up to four inches and 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.

Pink Comet 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.

Approximate purchase size: 1-1/2” to 2”
