- - swordtail temps (http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/livebearers/swordtail-temps-81410/)
do swordtails really need temps of 76-84? the minimum of 76 seems high, considering that it says they do better at cooler temps. do they do ok at like 72 or 74?
i'm trying to figure out what to put with some, and a lot of the fish i'm finding that can handle the harder water/higher pH likes water a little on the colder side, a lot being no higher than 78 or 79.
can anyone else add some information? i'm not doubting you, pisces, i would just like to have more sources one way of the other, since the two ranges i now have are rather different. i want to do what is best for my fish, and wrong or misleading information is potentially worse than no information.
so, i googled swordtail temperature ranges and got the following:
that is quite a range. can anyone verify any of these? i don't know enough about this kind of thing to rate the reliability of the sites i found these ranges on.
Have kept them at warmer temps and believe they fair better,longer, between 73 and 75 degrees F. ;-)
so, if i plan tank mates based on 75 F tank, i should be ok, right?
Yes but they have to be compatible with Swords like other livebearers.
Should be fine.
Would alway's have more females than males if space permit's.
Males only,,or more than one male in 20 gal tank,,,and the two males will maybe not get along so well.
One male to three or four females if you wish to raise fry.
