The first 2 pics are of my female hi-fin platy. Yes, she's pregnant so that throws it off a bit, but you can still see how short and stubby her body shape is compared to the OP's pic. You can also see the very distinct V shaped arch platies have compared to swordtails in the back. I also went ahead and added a pic of my female panda platy to show the V shaped back along with general body shape of a platy. The last pic is of my male swordtail. His body looks almost identical to the OP's pic minus the sword on his tail that's hidden in the pic anyways. Sorry the pic quality isn't so great. I just snapped them real quick with my phone.Coptapia said:The picture is taken from slightly above the fish. Absolutely not a Swordtail.
