Hi Fin Lyretail Swordtail - Different Colors

I ordered some of these from Live Aquaria, and I recieved 2 that looked just like the picture, and 2 that are spotted and look nothing like the picture. Are those the females?

the females will not have the sword-type tail. Any chance of pictures, your description is very vague.

They look nothing alike. The other 2 fish are about the same length, but are grey and grey/black speckled. Will work on pictures for tomorrow.

I spoke to a rep from Live Aqua, they seem to think the coloration change was from shipping stress. Will give them some time to color up and see how it goes.
