Swordtail – the easiest fish to keep ever.

I have a lot of swordtail fish in my aquarium. They are so nice and sparkling in the sunshine, in the golden color. They make them relax very much when they keep swimming around in the surface of the water and I can watch them easily. Unlike Koi fish, they are not afraid of people and never hide under the rock in the aquarium.
They are also a kind of fish which is easy to breed. At first, I only had about 20 fish of this type in my aquarium. They, the female fish, give birth in the spring of Vietnam, when it’s very cold. If you want a lot of fish in your aquarium, take care of the mother fish and let them out of the aquarium to another space, when they can give birth. Without that, other kinds of fish would eat the fish eggs. I don’t care about this matter much, but I often see 10 young fish can grow up safely each time the mother fish give birth to them.
In my country, Vietnam, this kind of fish is very cheap, so everyone can buy it. It is also a friendly kind of fish and can live well with other fish in the aquarium. So, I highly recommend the Swordtail for your aquarium.
