Swordtails are a colourful live bearer native to central American, They are very closely related to platys and come in a range of colours including orange, black, green, neon and Santa claus. Swordtails are great beginner fish also with easy of care and relative lost cost being major contributors to this. They are not fussy on diet but just like most other live bearers swordtails prefer water on the harder side but will adapt to most water except the most acidic.
