question about swordtails

just a couple of questions:

1) are they nippy?

2) are they compatible with my stock list

3) do they breed like crazy if mixed?

I think this is a good article about swordtails: The Swordtail Fish

They aren't especially nippy but I have heard a few accounts about males bullying other species.

I don't think they're right for your tank honestly. They get to 6".

They do breed a lot, like any livebearer, but not like guppies.

Good luck with the aquarium Have you posted pics recently?
