    So what is the best male to female ratio for swordtails? Is 2m-5f better than 2m-4f for breeding and ensuring that they stay in good condition? What do you think?

    The more females the better to stop one being overly harassed, I'd go with 2 males 5 females

    But don't the males get spread a bit thin doing their job ;)

    They'd be the same even if there were no females in the tank, livebearer males have a one track mind
