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.

I have had a community tank for about 1 year now. I have fancy guppies, mollys, platys, tetras, and several bottom feeders. I didn't realize until he was an adult that my 24K molly was a male and has been trying to mate with my guppy female. I was told that this is quite normal and that you can have mix breed fry. I wonder what the fry would look like.

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!

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!
