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.

A few months ago my husband and I bought our daughter two silver lyretail mollies. She had only had them for a little while she woke up one morning and realized she had ten babies in her tank. She got so excited but then a few days later the mother died but the fry are doing very well and have grown fast
i got 4 dalmation mollys today and they are great.
they are so colourful even though they are black and white.
im just waiting on some fry.
Hi, I just got 2 dalmation mollies when I got them home I noticed that they both have a golden yellow dusting over their bodies, so they are now in a hospital tank because I don't know if this is normal for them. I'm a little bummed, I was excited to add them to my aquarium.
Hello. I just got two dalmation mollys to put in with my 2 tiger barbs. I am hoping to have some fry someday soon. They are so active and cool.
oh!! these fish are great. i bought 2 on sunday 2006march26th. I've only had them for few days but they are so cool! Since they breed like rabbits i'd prefer the female to be alone when its pregnant. I have them with playties and guppies [no swordtails] and all those fish mix right in! Anyway, these are great fish!
I actually bought 6 assorted colored balloon mollies. I have never owned such interesting fish. They enjoy the entire tank. Two days before Christmas, I awoke to 23 fry. All are still healthy and active, but when they get a little bigger, I am going to have to get another fish tank, lack of space and all.
Right now I have 4 mollies. 1 of them a sailfin and the other three lyretails. They are easy to take care of yet I found that a few of them have a tiny white dots on their tails and fins and was wondering what it was. They are mixed w/ a pair of guppies. (Editor: spots are possibly ick which mollies can be prone too. This is easily medicated with an ick medicine such as Aquarisol and raising the temperature to about 83 Degrees F during the treatment.)

we started off with 2 dalmatian mollies and now have 22 ! 5 months later ! if they carry on breeding this fast, we'll need another tank.
I had golden albino and dalmation mollies in my tank. they were very social but new tank syndrome killed off half of them. both of my dalmation mollies lived and so did one of my albino mollies. my dalmation mollies had fry. 2 months later when cleaning my tank I forgot to add dechlrorenator, all my fry and my male dalmation mollie and my last albino mollie died. for 3 weeks I watch my female mollie with no mate, so I got another male and they mated immediently. Im expecting fry any time now.
