Um... my family and I recently bought a tank (tropical) and we have 1 male and two female platies, two baby ones, and three male guppies! We are hoping to get more but since we have only had the tank for five days yet, and two have ALREADY been born, I think we'll leave it at that for the moment!

I got a Balloon Molly and a Black Molly. The Balloon Molly is a female, so I named her Molly. The Black Molly is a male, so I named him Blackie. I hope they have babies. That would be cool! I'll wait and see.

I had a molly and he or she would always get the food first and guard it all for itself. One day I brought home a shrimp and put in the tank, the next week it was gone so I just bought another. But the next week it was gone too. Then I found out it was the molly. These are really good fish.

I started with 2 swordfish, they are green with a red line down the side. The male has a beautiful long light green tail with a black edge all around. They have mated many times. The male doing that dance he does going forward then backing up to the female. They have had fry about 4 times since I've had them. Almost all have lived and I leave the babies within the tank with all the other fish and they have all made it by hiding in the plants and rocks. Also, some of the bigger fish have gotten use to seeing the fry around. I feed all of them 2 times a day. So just let them be and they will take over the tank in no time. I keep the water temperature at about 80 degrees. The only thing is it seems like all the fry are females, some are 1 inch long and I don't see any swords yet. I guess I'm stuck with 100 females and a male. Lucky fish.

These livebearers are very cool to have in an aquarium because they are easy to care for. In my experience is they are wonderful to have because they breed after 20 To 30 days. They are very peaceful and lead very joyful lives. Being omnivorous they can eat all types of food stuffs especially for tropical fishes. I love these platy moontail.

I bought a Yo Yo loach the other day. In the clear bag with my Yo Yo loach was a baby Balloon Molly. It hides behind the air tubes a lot. It eats the flake food I feed to my other fish. I can't wait until it gets bigger. It's so cute. I'll have fun watching my baby molly grow.

I can't believe that my Gold Platy is considered a "community fish". It beat up on my Betta fish (who has since been separated), and is now going after my Marbled Molly (especially during feeding time).

I'm new to the guppy business. I bought 5 guppies over a month ago and four died so i got 4 more, and then three died. So now I have only two, one from the first batch and one from the second. The day after I got my guppies I had six babies in the tank so we caught them and put them in a rose bowl until we could get a breeding net. After we got the next four fish we had 15 babies in the breeder net and then 5 died. Then one of the fish had 20+ babies about a month after I got her so now I have 22+ babies and 2 adults. I have no adult males. The 2 feamles are due in three days and the other in three weeks. I have six 6 week old, four 4 week old, and 20+ 1 week old babies. If you buy female guppies from the pet store they are usually pregnant.
