How big is the tank? For swordtails a good size for breeding and raising is a 20 gallon. This allows room for the babies to grow at a rather slow rate...and also room for the lesser males to hide from the all ruling dominant male.


The suckers will breed as long as they have good water and some space.


Good Luck!

You might also add 2 more females. Not only does this improve your odds exponentially but it also gives the females a break as the males tend to really harass them.
