What Kind Of Fish Is This?

I have just taken a fish tank from someone who doesn't want it anymore and I was wondering what type of fish this is?

Thank you in advance

Yup, it is a hybrid based off Xiphophorus variatus, a fish that occurs just a little north of platys (X maculatus), in Mexico. In many ways, they are halfway between swordtails and platys, however, most of the ones in the hobby are hybrids.

It's a great, undervalued fish. I had one become so tame it would swim into my cupped hand when I was doing weekly water changes.

It needs a higher pH 7.5+, hard water and a temperature range of 20c to 25c. It's a fine community fish.

Welcome to FishLore!!
He looks to me like a platy or swordtail.
Most likely a mix between the both.
 
As fatcatfish and navigatorblack said, it is a variatus tuxedo type. Looks intermediate between swords and platies, but is based on another species of Xiphophorus.
