Hifin Lyretail Swordtail

Swordtails are a group of colorful and active livebearers found throughout Central America. The male fish of this species grow a long fin on the bottom of their tail, this is absent in females but they tend to grow slightly larger. They are closely related to platy’s and do well in community tanks. Like guppies and platy’s, they will breed readily in an aquarium. Hi fin lyre swords have the fanciest fins for this class of aquarium fish. The hifin lyre swordtail has elongated dorsal fins and an extended lyre shaped tail.
