You will find that with any livebearers they have the ability to store
sperm for quite some time. At times I have gotten female swordtails at
the shop and have had them in my tank for a few months with no other
males and they give birth

Pretty well most all fish are fine to keep as long as your faithfull
at keeping water paraeter and its environment like it should be. There
really is no such thing as an ICH free fish.

===================
No fish attracts illnesses and disease. Some are more resistant than others
but all will succumb to overcrowding or poor water conditions. Parasites
are passed from one fish to another. Even healthy fish can be infested by
one already carrying them. Like another poster suggested,.... read up on
tropical fish and their care. Buy a few books. Google "tropical+fish+care."
