mollies are very nice fish, but don't keep it with any goldfish as it will start to nip. this fish need active tank mates like tetras or other livebearers. i have a 4 (2 males and 2 females) silver lyretails. Two silver, a black male, and a dalmation female. beautiful but aggressive.

I love my guppies! They're adorable little guys. And they breed like crazy. I have 3 females and 3 males, and I constantly have new fry in the eank. So far I have not seen any of them being eaten or chased by the others.
They're also well trained. Everytime I come into the room, they all come up and watch me. Very adorable fish!

I am 13 years old and i love breeding swordtails. I currenly have 87 fry. The mothers will not eat their babies until about 1-2 hours after ALL LABOR. Keep an eye on the mother if you have a pregnant one. The longest one has been through labor is about 3 1/2 hours, the shortest is about 1 hour. Good luck with all of your swordtail breeding

I love guppies! I think they are beautiful graceful fish. I have 6 right now and none of them have the same coloring. I just wish I could figure out how to keep them alive long enough to breed them. I have tried water changes, different food, eliminating other fish that may be antagonizing the guppies. I think I am destined to fail in this endeavor. I'm tired of killing fish. My friend laughs at me and says She has never known anyone who has so much trouble with her tank. We'll see how long the 6 guppies survive. Maybe this time will be different. If not, I'll just stick to the catfish and pleco.

Just bought two black mollies and two dalmation mollies. Seem to be doing fine. I really want to get one or two of the gold mollies. I have in my 55 gallon aquarium two angelfish, two danios, 4 black skirt tetras and one pleco and they all seem to be getting along just fine. Just need to get some fish with some color in there!

I have 6 dalmation mollies and one of them is a nasty little sod.

Right now, ladies and gentlemen, 2 males and 2 females will do for a beginner. They breed like there's no tomorrow, and they will eat practically any flake you feed 'em. 'Course, you need a big tank for them to feel comfortable in, and they can be beautiful. :D

Mollies are a good hardy starter fish and will multiply in your tank. I work at a pet store and see fish come in, get sold or die in the store. I have marble, dalmation, balloon, black and lyretail mollies. Most of these were from where I work. I have approximately 50 mollies in my tank with about 50 other fish and 50 snails to boot. Mollies also like salt in their tank and can tolerate brackish water to salt water enviroments. My fish seem to do the best at 75 degrees to 77 degrees. Out of all the mollies the balloons will entertain you.

We have bought 1 male and 2 females of the Silver Lyretail Molly.
The fishes are not so peaceful like mentioned in many books and on the web. They are agressive to all the forms of Goldfish but not to other species.
