    I want to order a swordtail and some gbrs from liveaquaria but i want to make sure i get a male swordtail (i already have 4 female) and the correct ratio of male to female gbrs. By the way what id the correct male to female ratio? I also wanted to get some cherry barbs but i dont know how many to get.
    75 gal
    3 angelfish
    7 albino cories
    4 swordtails
    1 bristle pleco

    You may be able to contact them through e-mail. Personally, I've found better deals through Aquabid, plus their sex is often listed with the posting. Check out the seller's profile; if it's good, they will likely be willing to work with you in terms of ratios. :)

    Sometimes LiveAquaria sells pairs... But that would mean you would end up with another female along with the male. You best bet is if you have a lfs near you that you could find one at, that way you can hand-pick one yourself, and you know if your buying a male!
