    Can you breed high fin lyre tail swords using a male lyre tail sword or do you need a regular male sword?

    Is the information you were looking for?


    The XFins site includes images and information that I hope will be useful to both beginners and advanced hobbyists. My primary focus as a hobbyist is the development of colorful fancy finned swordtails including hifin and lyretail varieties. Many of the beautiful fancy finned fish that are available today are the product of interspecies hybridization. All species of Xiphophorus are potential sources of genes or gene modifiers that when expressed in a different species, can produce novel color patterns or fancy finnage. I have used natural matings and artificial insemination to search for new hifin, lyretail, and color gene modifiers in several wild species and the results are shown here.
