Post It's fishy in Illinois!

Hi, everyone. I just joined after coming across your link in a search for "aquarium swordfish." I was wondering if the swordfish and swordtails are one and the same. I have female Bettas in my tank and swordtails were an option to add.

This is a great site! I'm glad to get involved. Having a fish tank can be a work of art and so peaceful for us to enjoy. See ya later! I'm going fishing.

When I hear swordfish I think saltwater, pointy nose, perfect storm.. Swordtails are a livebearer with a pointy tail, so.. They probably are different.

Pointy nose or pointy tail?

Thanks for the reply. I think of the Marlin when I think of "swordfish," but in a book I read about Bettas (Siamese Fighting Fish), it suggested to put swordfish in the tank. I don't have a big enough tank for the swordfish we're thinking of! Best wishes.
