The Golden Tuxedo Swordtail, also known as Xiphophorus hellerii, is a peaceful and colorful freshwater fish species that originates from Mexico. They are a popular choice for aquarists due to their hardiness, ease of care, and beautiful appearance.


Golden Tuxedo Swordtails have a distinctive elongated body shape, with males growing up to 5 inches in length and females up to 6 inches. They require a minimum tank size of 30 gallons and should be kept in groups of one male and multiple females to prevent aggression.


These omnivorous fish will eat a variety of foods, including flakes, pellets, and small pieces of vegetables. It's important to provide a balanced diet to ensure they receive all the necessary nutrients for optimal health.


The Golden Tuxedo Swordtail's unique characteristic is their bright yellow coloration, with black markings on their fins resembling a tuxedo. They also have a distinctive sword-like extension on their tail fin, which is more pronounced in males.
