Zoro had his way...

    Birth announcement!:;balloons I was cleaning my gravel today and out pops this baby swordtail! I guess Zoro, my male swordtail finally got lucky after chasing Espada all around the tank. I am not sure how long the little guy has been in there, he is all black like his dad and about 8 mm long. Anyone know how big they are right at birth? Could there have been a whole bunch that were born at night and every one turned into a fish-stick snack but this one? I may have to rehome my white clouds for some space for my babies, instead of making room for three guppies as I planned. Currently I also have a baby platy, Small-fry.:;fg

    Congratulations, GoGreen! Wow, I thought black swordtails were infertile. Zoro proved that wrong.

    Congradulations on the new arrival.

    Although some strains of black sword are infurtile, not all of them are. They may need a little help. If you research artificial breeding you can learn to improve the effectiveness of their breeding.
