ooo i wana see what kind u get!!!

i have 2 swordtails in my 36 gallon tank. at first i had one male and one female but one day they were attacking each other like crazy and the female got her fins messed up! so we bought 2 more females and that settled everything...but now im back down to a male and female but its a different female..shes bigger than the male so he doesnt attempt to attack her just mate with her...but she hasnt given birth since...WHO KNOWS!!!
