Firecracker Swordtail

Description

The Firecracker Swordtail (Xiphophorus helleri) is an exquisite color morph of the popular Swordtails. This is a highly sought after variation that boasts a breathtaking, saturated red colouration and the unusual red eyes of a true albino morph. 

These sociable fish thrive in well-maintained aquariums with a temperature range of 65-82°F (18-28°C) and a pH between 7.0 and 8.3. Here are some quick facts about them:

  • Tank Size: The smallest aquarium size for a swordtail to survive is roughly around 20 gallons. They are best kept in groups, showing a wide range of colors and patterns. A well-maintained tank with ample space for swimming is essential for their well-being.
  • Diet: A balanced diet of flake food, live, and frozen foods is recommended for optimal health.
  • Behavior: Swordtails are peaceful and active fish, making them excellent choices for beginners.
  • Breeding: They are livebearers, meaning they give birth to live young rather than laying eggs.
