Hmmm, I bought some green swordtails not too long ago as fry and they are just now starting to really show there spots. All of mine have spotting but nothing like you are referring too. It almost sounds like a tuxedo pattern you are describing. And to add one thing to chromedomes explanantion of the high fin gene it is also lethal in a double does meaning that any embryo with two sets of high fin genes will not develope; why exactly I still am not sure. Therefore all high fin fish carry one high fin gene and one normal fin gene. I have heard some people talk about producing all high fins from a mating of two high fins but I still have yet too see any actual documented proof.
