ok i got my bettas to breed so im gonna try my swordtails.they dont need live food and r very easy to breed.i have them in a community tank.3 females and a male.but i might get 2 more swordtails in a couple days.i have a marble,neon, and orange swordtail as females and a tuxedo male.i wanna get a red velvet male and female i think they r pretty.and i want to breed them all. i got my hands right now on a breeder net. and im not using it and my parents dont let me put it in the community tank. my orange swordtail is pregnant for sure cause i can see the eyes of the babies. i hope i can convince them before they come out.

hi thought i may be able to help you with livebearers......the female may not like the male ...iv had 3 platys for about 7-8 month and they havnt breed at all (yet) but the female may have been pregnant when the fight broke out with your male so if she was P then she wouldnt have wanted to breed so she will have "fort him off" also i know platys and swordtail can take up to around 8 months to mature

hope this helps
good luck..:):):)....(i love it when i find babys)

omg its the best feeling but it only happened to me once with my guppys. but with my swordtail i was getting ready to go to school and i turned on the light and she was skinnier so i thot "not again" then i looked around and saw 5 or 6 but i saw a couple get eaten so i captured to and put them in a real net not a breeders net cause i didnt have time. i had to leave.so then i get home and my moms bf tells me they died which im not buying.
