Wait, wait. Did you just say your mom was saving money to buy GUPPIES for five months? then the guppies in your local store must be more than 20 bucks a piece cause where I live guppies are less than two dollars..

Your fish are going to die off soon in that kind of environment, goldfish are cold-water fish and need large tanks, molly's and guppy's reproduce like rats and will need a 10g+.

To me it seems like the molly's are fighting for space.

Occupied Tanks;
1 ten gallon tank
1 five gallon tank


empty;
a few jars

external penguin bio wheel 150 packed with cheato
ETH 200 watt inline heater
3 power heads 500gph

If you care about your fish, you will get a larger tank. Simple as that.

Check Craigslist and the local thrift shops. There are larger tanks out there, but you have to be willing to look for them.

Never get an animal for which you don't have the money, time, and space for.

Now your just lying, if you were poor how would you have all these fish. And you do realize a one gallon tank is less than twenty dollars right?

Where I live, even homeless people can get at least ten dollars in a week or two.

You can't afford guppies, but you have a computer, and internet access?

Do you live near a stream?! If you live in India you could always try catching your own fish in a stream or river.

Also, how is it that you feed these fish? The food is more expensive than the fish are usually.

I am sorry to hear about your situation.

If you do not have enough money to buy a tank, you can be very resourceful and build your own tank. It will be cheaper but time consuming if you are willing to do it. You could get a sheet of glass or acrylic glass so you can see into it. There are many tutorials online of how to do this.
