Default Can someone please ID this swordtail

Hi Guys,
I think I might have something special here. I picked up this fish at Finatics 2 months ago. This is a large bodied male swordtail, with lyretails features, normal gonopodium, and extremely wide dorsal fin.

Is this a King Lyretail?

That's Joe. He's basically a nice guy, but he does have some anger issues.

Definately possible.

Check out this great website on xiphophorus breeding, Platys.net

Did FINATICS have more or just the one?

He had about five them, mixed in with some other red velvets. Never seen a swordtail this aggressive. I was there yesterday at Finatics, and the tank is empty. Hayden made a request for me, so I expect that Mike should have some at the end of September, after his store reno.

Aquatic Kingdom has abunch of them that just came in 2 weeks ago. They labelled it Hi-fin swordtails.

I heard finatics was under reno - but are most of his tanks empty? Cus I plan on dropping by soon.
