I got red and black mollies which breed every 2 weeks. At one point I had 40 or more fry in my tank which totally amazed me and my girls. Lovely fish. Regards, Mossy

How did you get the red mollies, did you breed them yourself...I'm want to try breeding to see if I can produce the red strain.
Hi we have a nursery tank and at the moment, we have about 100 or more baby red mollies. She seems to breed all the time. Was wondering how to go about selling these fish as about 40 are all good size and we are scared they will start to eat the new babies soon. Thanks.
I have a short finned yellow molly. It is very small but lonely, and has no partners

I have 4 Mollies, 1 male and 3 female. I feel so sorry for the male because he has wanted to spawn for awhile now and the females aren't interested. He just looks so sad!
Hey. my brother just bought two Marble Sailfish Mollies today and about 4 or 5 hours later, they started going after each other. They are real aggressive towards each other. When we got them, they were both in the same tank, so we thought they'd be ok together. Now, they won't leave each other alone. Can someone please tell me what's going on before one of the Mollies get hurt or whatever?
Just to let your know, one is mostly black with white spots and the other is mostly silver/white/gold/orange/yellow with black spots. Is one female and the other male? is one a Marble Molly and the other isn't? I'm SUPER worried!
P.S- they are only going after the back fins
I got Balloon Mollies. 1 male and 2 females. I love the Balloon Mollies. They're so cool looking. I hope they have babies for me. That would be cool! I'll have to wait and see if they have babies.

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.
