    Default Problem with breeding.

    0 Not allowed!
    Hello, I'm having some problems on breeding my Kohako and Albino Swordtails. 2 months before when I have no tank for them, I put them along with my Black Swordtails and 1 of my Kohako and Albino Swordtail got pregnant and the results are some Black S. and Pale colored Swordtails.

    After getting a new tank for my Kohako and Albino S. they got pregnant again by my Hi-Fin Albino S. but the fry that being born are Black S and Pale Colored S. again. No albino or kohako s. are coming out from them. Until now they're giving birth to Black S. and Pale colored S and it's over 2 months and the result are still the same.

    I have no idea why is that happening.

    Any help?

    (sorry for my english)

    This is normal for swordtail to bring 2-3 broods from one insemination and obviously your hi-fin didn't impregnate a f. yet.
    I believe the time hasn't come yet for your worry. However, if such situation continues or no pregancy is resulting in long time, then your m.'s abilities (like quality of gonopodium) should be examined.
