The Koi Sanke Swordtail features beautiful three-color patterns! Some have the iconic swordtail, while others don't. These fish are collected for their unique patterning, similar to their much larger koi counterparts.

The Koi Sanke Swordtail (Xiphophorus helleri) is a vibrant swordtail variant with striking orange, black, and white/silver colors. Males may have a long "sword" at the bottom of their tail, and females can also develop this feature. Look for the male gonopodium near the anal fin to identify males. This unique fish is a descendant of the wild Green Swordtail (Xiphophorus helleri) and incorporates genetics from other Xiphophorus species for its distinctive color patterns.
Swordtails live near the surface of the water but also swim in the middle and bottom areas. They may jump, so keep them in a covered tank or with lowered water. They won't eat plants and can be with peaceful fish, preferably more females than males. Some swordtails may consider small shrimp as prey, but they can also be with larger, calm invertebrates. It's best to have a group of swordtails.

This fish isn't picky - it'll stay colorful with a varied diet of meaty foods! Accepts high-quality flake food, pellets, and frozen or freeze-dried tubifex and bloodworms.
