Thumbs up Thank you everyon! The fry have arrived!!!


I thank all of those people that helped me to this point and last night my Sailfin Molly had her fry!!!

Please tell me when a Sailfin Molly is mature enough to sell to my LFS or to friends as I don't want to kill them and in any currency, can someone tell me how much a LFS would generally pay for a single Sailfin Molly.

Another question: How do I transport them if I don't have an oxygenated bag or something? Please give me some pointers

Here's a picture:

Thank you so much,

I usually use air pump to fill up the bag with air before transporting fishes to my friends. You may use the same method.

Most of the live fish stores here won't give cash, they will trade fish or merchandise for your fry.

You have time. Usually they won't take until a good size.

I have a battery operated AZOO pump you can get from Fosters and smiths
