My female Xiphophorus signum died today
[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] . Signums are a species of very large green swordtails. They can reach 7 inches. The males have very short (1") swords that are lemon yellow with black borders. The species is called the "comma swordtail" because both sexes have what looks like a big black comma in the lower third of their caudal fins. I had 3 males and this big female from fry I raised. The female gave birth yesterday and I saved 18 fry. Today she died. I guess it was due to problems with giving birth as she seemed to have alot more babies inside her. She was a beautiful 4 inch fish and only 9 months old.
