Looking for Swordtails (NYC)


Hey there guys, I've been looking for some swordtails but I just can't seem to find any! So if you guys have any decent sized fry you'll be willing to sell, I'd gladly take them, but also grown adults too. I'd prefer red, but any color is fine. Also, if you anyone has any lyretails (fry or adults) I'm looking for those too.

Was at pacific this past monday and they were stocked with red sword tails. These were definitely adults.

Not sure if anyone in NYC has them, I picked up a pair of Rio Otapa Swordtails, I think these are the wild type. They are very large swordtails about a large sailfin molly and a tail that extends longer than the body. Unfortunately, I found the male jumped out and dried up this morning...

It was in a quarantine 5 gallon bucket for not even a night, didn't even make it to my display tank to be able to jump out of there though that has a glass lid on them.

It was the only pair they had so I'll have to keep an eye out for them. The most expensive swordtails I ever paid for. Hopefully it mated with the female that's still sane.
