Red Wag Swordtail

In the aquatic trade the word wag refers to a black tail fin. When the red wag swordtail swims about the aquarium it does appear to wag a tail.  Unlike the deep red body of the velvet red swordtail, the red and red wag swordtails have a little orange in the red color of the body.
