They are quite easy to care for and I had several who managed to breed. They get along well with the other fish but my serpae tetra love to nip on them.

I dont recommended this for the beginning fish owners. They are hard to keep alive and it is not pleasent to see them die in four days after you buy them. One of three we own is dead, one is dying, and one is lethargic. Be aware of these fish.

My husband and I have two Dalmation Lyre-Tail Mollies. One is black with white spots and the other is white with black spots. They are both males. We will be purchasing several females very soon. We have named our Mollies Abbott and Costello because they are so funny to watch. Mollies are very friendly and get along well with other fish, and I highly recommend them to anyone!

Guppies are beautiful fish which add alot more than just a fish to your tropical aquarium. I first bred them 3 weeks ago, I bought a pregnant female and a breeding trap and within 5 hours in my tank the female started to give birth to 86 young. Only 9 of the fry were eaten, after 8 weeks I walked to the shop that I bought the female from and sold all the best looking ones for $1.00AUS each. the others were put back in my tank.

WARNING be carful not to put males and females together as they will breed extremly fast (not that thats bad, just be carful)

Black mollies really are fun fish. After keeping them for a while, I learned that you could convert them to a saltwater fish. They seemed to make a great addition to my saltwater tank!

We have 2 platies that were a gift to my son on his 5th birthday. They have been GREAT as a fish for beginners. It turns out they are very hardy fish and have survived (and thrived) despite the fact that we are just learning how to keep an aquarium healthy. They even survived a bout with "protozoan velvet" parasite that must have come from the pet store. I love how energetic and colorful they are, and have become as attached to the little buggers as my son is.

i just wanted to say that i love my sword tails. i just got them about a week ago, i hope the female gets pregnant. they are excellent community fish. i have them in a 50 gallon tank with 7 mollies, a school of 5 bala sharks, 3 black skirt tetras, 1 male betta, and a shy little fiddler crab. they all get along just fine. i guess i will know when my female sword tail is pregnant cause she will get fat i assume. i have a breeder net ready, i just hope it comes soon.
