Koi Kohaku Red Eye Swordtail
Koi swordtails, also known as kohaku red eye swordtails, are bred in Thailand to display a bright red and white pattern similar to the famed kohaku show pattern of Japanese pond koi fish. Male kohaku swords mature at a very late age so initially the two are not distinguishable. These fish are show quality swordtails and stand out in a community tank with their very bright colors. If you order multiple swordtails we try our best to keep the ration 50:50 male to female, but like we said, it is very difficult to sex them until they get very mature.
