New Swords

I picked up 3 female tiger swordtails from LPS the other day. I was lucky enough to get one of each colour combo! They look great in my tank!

Enjoy

I may be wrong, but the silver&black one is actually a male platy... I noticed today when it was trying to mate with the white one. I'll try and get a pic up of him now. It's pretty obvious I think. You might be able to see in the first pics.
Thanks LPS, for selling me a platys labeled as swordtails. The guy said he believed that there were only females left in the tank, which is exactly what I wanted.

It looks female to me... The anal fin is fanned out, which usually means female. Although it kinda has that gonopodium kinda look to it.

Females have a more rounded anal fin. Whereas in the last pic you can see the part that sticks out more. He was just moving it around.
