Crossbreeding; Guppies, Swordtail, and platies oh my
Hi! In one of my tanks I have dwarf panda guppies and Kohaku (koi) swordtails (among other non-livebearers). In another tank, I have just some regular guppies (also among other non-livebearers). I have kept the regular guppies out of the panda guppy tank so that I could make sure any fry in the panda guppy tank were just panda guppies, not mixed up with the regular guppies. I have not worried about the swordtails and the panda guppies crossbreeding because I read somewhere that wouldn't happen between these two.
I have more fish arriving tomorrow. I had ordered 8 more Kohaku swordtails (look like my avatar), but they are low on inventory and are instead sending a few swordtails but substituting several honeybee platies. Do I now need to worry about crossbreeding between the platies and either the guppies or swordtails?
