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.

I just bought my Mollies today and noticed that one of them might be pregnant. While I was looking up information about it she started giving birth! The last time I counted there were 16 babies and since then she's had more. I've given up counting.

Hi, I recently purchased 3 Dalmation Mollies 2 only lasted 3 mos. 1 is still a member of my fish community. He (I think it's a he) has turned pure black. The other 2 mollies who died were also transforming to black. Has anybody experienced this before? My original Dalmation 'Mephisto' who's now black is mean to the 3 new Dalmations. I am searching the web and my aquarium books to find any info I can on Dalmation Mollies. Anyone who has any insight please let me know, it will be greatly appreciated by me and my new Molly group.

I got a Balloon Molly and a Black Molly. The Balloon Molly is a female, so I named her Molly. The Black Molly is a male, so I named him Blackie. I hope they have babies. That would be cool! I'll wait and see.
