That swordtail is beautiful! So your females are orange but he is this color? What color do the parents throw when they have fry?
(I have no doubt your fish will grow fast!)
Kymmie, I have one female that is actually also a "Green" swordtail (even though there is no green on her, she is just a plain orange color). The other two females are the velvet type. Oddly enough I have never seen fry from these swords.
I don't know if they have the fry and they eat them right away or if maybe the male is infertile? But there is one female who always seems to look gravid.
Truth be told, I also find livebearers kind of boring. I'm thinking of auctioning these off at next month's fish club meeting.
