When first starting
Select Aquatics, there were a half dozen species that had to be
because they were disappearing, and were once the most highly
desired livebearers seen
at a show show or convention. This is one of those species.
Maintained by just a
few hobbyists involved in domestic swordtail development, it
took over 5
years, and keeping smaller less well known populations before
eventually locating a few pair
of this original, iconic fish.
