"Swordtails do not change sex, the situation you are referencing is a late developing male which occurs when there is already large male in the tank. Other males will develop slower until they reach a size that can compete with the tanks dominant male and will then develop their male characteristics. I have researched it and seen t twice in my own tanks, after which the late developing male would go on to father many fry of his own. This I am sure of from pairing the new males with young virgin females to be sure the changing of sex did not occur."
