I love the fat little guys in the morning when I stick my finger in the tank. My baby Balloon Mollies that survive are the funniest they never leave eachothers sides.

Mollies are great starter fish, easily mixed with tetras or danios.

Mollies are great pets, easy to keep, and are prolific breeders. I have had mollies for just a week and now have 53 more. If you want to breed fish, try mollies, they seem to breed the best out of all the livebearers.

I think that mollies, platys and swordtails have very low defenses against mainly fungus and fungul parasetic diseases and proper precautions should be taken to prevent these diseases. This site gives valuable info. to novices in the fish hobby Strasser Sankar

Now im not here to get all all sentimental and mushy inside about the mollies but...i will tell you what i have...Well fellas....and gals.....I have a helluva combination in my 49 gallon tank I bought at Wal-Mart. So far I have bought 18-female-sailfin mollies for a whopping $40.00 A good price to pay on these is about $2.00 per fish. If you are paying more than that.....chances are you are getting ripped off so look around a bit........well anyways like i was saying...the tank looks really elegant with all these white sailfin mollies mixed in with BLACK angel fish....the contrast between black and white fish is really nice......

If u dont believe me....try it... =)

I am not sure what type of Mollies we have. We have a white one and a black one. We have determined that the white one is the female. She has had babies 3 times since this past July. The first two times there were 12 to 15. This last time we counted 24. It appears that she is now pregnant again. She had her last babies on 10/24/03.

I have 3 silver mollies and 4 black mollies... all the females seem to be pregnant -I am buying a net for them and we ll see what happens. I have acclimated them to be saltwater fish. I have not lost a one... they are all doing great... and they all seem to know when I m there they all swim to the front when I m there and to the top when I open the tank to drop food in... they are such piggies... I have 2 male (black) and the rest are all females so I could have my hands full and may need someone to take some of the fry when they are big enough...Petco or Walmart???

Black Mollies were my very first pets. I adored them so much then. They are still in my top favorite list. Black Mollies look very cool, with their jet black colors. Their fries are even cuter! Basically i fed them with tubifex worms & bloodworms daily. Their parents are really protective over their offsprings and I have never seen any of their parents eaten any yet, but do provide driftwoods or hiding places for the fries.
