I have 4 Mollies, 1 male and 3 female. I feel so sorry for the male because he has wanted to spawn for awhile now and the females aren't interested. He just looks so sad!

Hey. my brother just bought two Marble Sailfish Mollies today and about 4 or 5 hours later, they started going after each other. They are real aggressive towards each other. When we got them, they were both in the same tank, so we thought they'd be ok together. Now, they won't leave each other alone. Can someone please tell me what's going on before one of the Mollies get hurt or whatever?
Just to let your know, one is mostly black with white spots and the other is mostly silver/white/gold/orange/yellow with black spots. Is one female and the other male? is one a Marble Molly and the other isn't? I'm SUPER worried!
P.S- they are only going after the back fins

I have guppies and they are a joy to have. I never had delta guppies until some bred and two males had the swallow tail of a delta guppy.

I just started breeding all kinds of fish. Sword Tails are the easiest by far! I have 2 oranges and the mother had all orange but 1 white came out also.

Blue swordtails are actualy a blue wag and and swordtail cross ("beautiful fish" is one of the only ways to describe it).
I have a small 10 gallon tank but my 15 swordtails (around that much, adults and babies combined), 1 leopard pleco, and (at least) 110 mystery snails are all happy and have learned their feeding schedule. I'm going to get a bigger tank once I have room to house more fish and hopefully get a second pleco so my plecos might breed.

Hello guppy community. Sanjee asked when he should move his fry in with the older fish. That all depends on the size of your tank, but my rule of thumb is 3 to 4 weeks. I am currently breeding and selling them to the local pet shop. Right now I have about 50 fish (3 males, 6 females, and the rest are fry). I have them in various stages of development, I even have about 25 fry that are so small that you need a bright flashlight to see them. Breeding guppies is good fun. Feel free to contact me with any questions. My email address is 4wheelpro@live.com

I just love my (wild colored) Variatus! They are so active, easy to breed, and peaceful in my 20gal. tall community tank. My tank has low lighting (with a full glass top cover), 2" of Eco brand soil, 1med. piece of beautiful Mopanzi wood, Java moss, Java ferns, 1lg. Anub., 1lg. Balanese Crypt., good amount of Italian Val. (in back corners), 1sm. bunch Pennyroyal, and lots of floating Duckweed. I use a 30gal. Whisper hang on filter (set on low flow). The care of my tank is easy - remove overgrowth of most of duckweed (once a month), trim and remove any dead leaves (whenever found), rinse off filter every month (replace with new one every 6 months), replace fish/plant grow light tube (every 6 months - even if it's not burned out), top off water (as needed when it dehydrates down to 1" - usually once every 2 wks.), divide/remove extra grown plants (yearly), and remove baby Variatus when they are 1/4th grown (I give most of them away) - THAT"S IT! It houses 2f.Variatus and 1m.Var., 3f.Oto. cats and 2m.Oto. cats. (these are the best algea eaters EVER), 1m. Pearl Gourami, and 1m.Sunset Gourami! I just love my beautiful "LIVE" aquarium and gorgeous (wild colored)Variatus are my favorites fish!

I got Balloon Mollies. 1 male and 2 females. I love the Balloon Mollies. They're so cool looking. I hope they have babies for me. That would be cool! I'll have to wait and see if they have babies.

I raise a combination of clear (almost white) albino swords crossed with lyertail reds (Lyertail Red females X Albino clear males). As the process is slow, can you tell me more of the blue swordtails Josh / or anyone else. I need more variances to deal with. The blue intrigues me.
