The Hi Fin Lyretail Swordtail’s flowing fins make it a beautiful, graceful addition to any aquarium. It is a very popular fish among beginner to advanced freshwater aquarists. The Hi Fin Lyretail Swordtail is an easy-to-keep, peaceful live-bearing fish. Like many other livebearers, it comes in several brilliant color variations, including red, yellow and orange.
The Hi Fin Lyretail is a fin variation of the Xiphophorus helleri. The male Hi Fin Lyretail Swordtail has a feathery, lyre-shaped tail and flowing fins, with an extension on the lower part of its tail, resembling a sword. The fin variations of the female Lyretails are not as impressive. Hi Fin Lyretail Swordtails are jumpers so be sure to provide an adequate cover over the aquarium.
