I just set up my 110 gallon tank about a month ago, and a few weeks ago picked up 6 Mickey Mouse Platies, 4 female and 2 male. The males are bright, bright orange, with a very clear Mickey Mouse silhouette on the tail, and the females are kind of plain looking, but all are very healthy and happy and seem to be breeding. They stick closely together and sometimes go from one female right to the other! They seem disinterested, but have no choice! They are fairly young, and in the few weeks I've had them, all 4 are looking VERY pregnant! I expect to have fry in the next couple of weeks. A friend of mine gave me his Marble Angel and he tends to keep mostly to himself and does not bother the platies. I don't know why everyone is so worried about getting lots of fry in their tank - that's the idea of a community tank! I'm actually looking forward to having 50 or more fry as time goes on... any excess are going to the pet store! :-)

I have two black mollies, one goldfish, and an angel. I like them. My black molly gave 25 babies but now I have only two babies in my tank.

My brother has just got 3 red sword tails. They are friendly with the other fish but do sometimes fin-nip the red dwarf gouramis.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has experienced a dalmation molly turn pure black.I had 3, 2 died (they were losing there spots too). The one I still have is very active and healthy. I recently got 3 more dalmations and the original in the tank (now black) is chewing the pectoral fins off one of the new dalmations and will not leave it alone. I had to separate the new traumatized fish from the meanie. Does anybody know what is going on here? Is the new one a male and the black one a male and is maybe chewing off those fins (ponodium)? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I just bought my Mollies today and noticed that one of them might be pregnant. While I was looking up information about it she started giving birth! The last time I counted there were 16 babies and since then she's had more. I've given up counting.

Hi, I recently purchased 3 Dalmation Mollies 2 only lasted 3 mos. 1 is still a member of my fish community. He (I think it's a he) has turned pure black. The other 2 mollies who died were also transforming to black. Has anybody experienced this before? My original Dalmation 'Mephisto' who's now black is mean to the 3 new Dalmations. I am searching the web and my aquarium books to find any info I can on Dalmation Mollies. Anyone who has any insight please let me know, it will be greatly appreciated by me and my new Molly group.

I have just got a fish tank, and I got 3 guppies, an albino red-tailed black shark, 2 platies, 2 blue pearl gourami's, and a catfish. Already the guppies have bred, and I have 22 baby guppies and I might get some angelfish. My fish tank is so beautiful.
