HI all, I am so happy that my swordtail finally breed 3days ago ^__^
I am so excited since she had pregent for 1and half month .

Now I have around 15 swordtail fry (they look pink and red so cute!!!)

However... I dun think they are a pair... sad

Congrats on the fry. What size are the angels you bought? Where I live, ones that are about the size of a nickel(main body without fins) are about $5CDN

How big of a tank are your angels in? They're in a different tank from your other fish, right?

Oh I live in Vancouver. I can find those size with $5 CDN too

My tank is 55 galon with some other fish (platy swordtail tetra...)

I'm curious - are the guppy and swordtail fry in their own tank?

The Angels can be quite aggressive and quickly kill everything else in the tank once they 'buddy up' and get territorial. They also get big. I'd recommend a 55 gallon for just them, especially if you want them to breed. Other fish around may make it harder or impossible for a successful mating. Mating could also make the angels aggressive, even to each other. Those cichlids are a handful but great fish.

It could be a pecking order thing. I'd monitor them and see if it becomes constant or more aggressive. sometimes a pair buddy up and the new guy could be an aggression target, but hopefully they'll settle into a peaceful order.
