As the fry grow, they must be culled, moved into larger tanks periodically, or they will be stunted.

If it is healthy and in the proper environment of course.
Ya that's what I thought, I was pretty sure the 10 gallon tanks would be to small for the swordtails once they get fully grown. I'd move them into my 25 gallon, but it's already a little over stocked
. I think I'll talk to some of the LFS in my area and see if they'll take them off my hands, Maybe I can get a store credit for them. They are very healthy and have great colors
