Product Information

Swordtails - 5cm Information

Max Size: 13 cm


Swordtails are omnivorous surface feeders with a large appetite. They will eat most aquarium fish foods and also graze on any algae growing within the aquarium. We suggest feeding a mix of flakes or pellets with ingredients like spirulina to help provide the necessary nutrients to aid in optimum growth and health. The addition of live foods like brine shrimp and daphnia, when available will also benefit X. helleri. The fry are easy to raise due to their larger size when compared to egg laying species, approximately 7 to 10mm in length when born. They will feed on finely ground dry foods.


Swordtails are generally suitable for keeping in community tanks with other medium sized fish. It should be noted that when they are fully grown they can be very active and may outcompete some smaller or less active species for food. Some adult Swordtails can be aggressive and develop the habit of fin nipping.
