Redtail Blue Highfin Variatus Live-bearer Aquarium Fish
Red-tailed Blue Highfin Variatus are one of the farm-raised color morphs of the wild type originally found in southern Mexico. The Red-Tailed Blue Variatus has a multi-colored body with blues and oranges with red tones in the tail. The Variatus is generally more elongated than its close cousin the Platy. The Variatus will prefer a densely planted tank and can be kept in pairs or groups. As an herbivore, plant based foods should be part of their diet, though they will eat most all prepared foods for the aquarium.
