mollies are very nice fish, but don't keep it with any goldfish as it will start to nip. this fish need active tank mates like tetras or other livebearers. i have a 4 (2 males and 2 females) silver lyretails. Two silver, a black male, and a dalmation female. beautiful but aggressive.

Just bought two black mollies and two dalmation mollies. Seem to be doing fine. I really want to get one or two of the gold mollies. I have in my 55 gallon aquarium two angelfish, two danios, 4 black skirt tetras and one pleco and they all seem to be getting along just fine. Just need to get some fish with some color in there!

Right now, ladies and gentlemen, 2 males and 2 females will do for a beginner. They breed like there's no tomorrow, and they will eat practically any flake you feed 'em. 'Course, you need a big tank for them to feel comfortable in, and they can be beautiful. :D

Mollies are a good hardy starter fish and will multiply in your tank. I work at a pet store and see fish come in, get sold or die in the store. I have marble, dalmation, balloon, black and lyretail mollies. Most of these were from where I work. I have approximately 50 mollies in my tank with about 50 other fish and 50 snails to boot. Mollies also like salt in their tank and can tolerate brackish water to salt water enviroments. My fish seem to do the best at 75 degrees to 77 degrees. Out of all the mollies the balloons will entertain you.

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.
(the 450 litre aquarium is hold on 25

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

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.
