The swordtail can manage at temperatures from 68 to 82F. As with most (but not all fish), keeping them in the lower- to mid-range is better. The higher the temperature, the more a fish must "work" to live.

I see our profile of this fish needs some revising, as some of the sections are empty.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
