Tank mates


I have got a 140 litre tank that is well planted with plenty of hiding spot. I have 4 Sailfin mollies in there at the moment, I was just wondering what would be good mid and top level fish to keep with them.

Thanks Oinkerz :)

Platy make for great Molly tank mates. So do most Swordtails and Cory Cats. I have Mickey Mouse Platy, Hi Fin Platy, Pineapple Swordtails and Albino Corys living in one of my community tanks. All very peaceful and all make for an active and beautiful community.

Assuming this is a 3-foot length tank, a few platy would add some colour with the molly. I would not include swordtails, they should have more space and get large.

I assume you are aware of the issue keeping male and female, so males only would be fine.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
