We want to promote the keeping of wild strains of Xiphophorus (platies and swordtails) and build a network of breeders to support the conservation of these amazing fish.

What’s new?

The joint meeting of Goodeid Working Group and Xiphophorus Working Group took place in Vienna on 27.-29.5.2022. Information about progress we’ve made and upcoming activities has been sent to all who subscribed to our mailing list.

Among other things, we discussed the results of the 1st European Xipho census and you can expect the results to be published here soon.
