Livebearers are small ornamental fishes that give birth to live young. The most popular livebearers (guppy, swordtail, platy, and molly) belong to Family Poeciliidae, known as livebearing tooth-carps (upper and lower jaw have teeth)
Livebearers originated from South America. They are considered as beginner’s fish because they are the easiest pet fish to keep and breed. They are not aggressive and can be kept in a community aquarium. They are easy to breed and requires small space and are suitable for small-scale backyard raising.
