PetSolutions Red Swordtails vary from shipment to shipment, they may be red brick or red velvet depending on current stock. A member of the Livebearer family, the Red Swordtail has very obvious differences between the males and females. The male will have a tubular anal fin, also called the gonopodium. More obvious, the tail will have a long "sword" extension along the bottom edge. This sword can almost equal the body length of the fish. Female Red Swordtails will have a standard rounded tail fin and anal fin. The Red Swordtails prefer open water with cover along the edges of the tank. Male Red Swordtails are sometime intolerant of other males, so they should be kept as a pair, or better yet, as a trio, one male and two females.
