Product Description

The Redwag Maculatus is a North American livebearer related to and in the same genus, Xiphophorus, as the swordtails. Most commercial strains of platies have mixed heritage, including ancestors from X. helleri, X. maculatus and X. variatus. This fish is largely descended from X. maculatus. We acquired this strain from a commercial source in 2002. Males often reach 4cm (1.5 in.). Females are somewhat larger and much heavier. Both sexes have brilliant red bodies and black fins. This fish has no natural range, but of its ancestors hail from Mexican and Central America.
