The green swordtail is the hardiest and one of the largest variations of swordtail aquarium fish in the trade. This is due to the fact that green swordtails are closest to the swordtails found in the natural habitat of Central America. The green color is light and designed to blend with the surrounding environment as a defense against predators.
