Red Velvet Wag Swordtail

The red velvet wag swordtail, also called the blood red wag swordtail,  is bred in Florida and has a deep red body and a black tail (and black sword if male). The word "wag" always connotes a black tail on the body of a  freshwater tropical fish.

Red velvet wags are a base red color, and standard red wag swordtails are actually a base orange color.
