Koi Swordtail 

Koi swordtails, also known as kohaku red eye swordtails,  are bred to display a bright red and white pattern similar to the famed kohaku show koi pattern. Male kohaku swords mature at a very late age so initially the male can only be distinguished by the gonopodium at the anal fin. These show quality swordtails look splendid in a community tank. When multiple swordtails are ordered we try our best to keep the ration 50:50 male to female. If you desire a pair please just note it on the order. We do not ship only males. They get too lonely ( and too few people ask only for females - we need to keep the tanks balanced).
