YouTube - Molly Fight...

I hope this isn't considered cruel... like the stickied thread says (bettas fighting...)... well this is just mollies doing a... dance(?) to each other to decide who gets the female...

I just thought it was interesting fish behavior... how they argue over who gets the female... they aren't really fighting... idk what they are doing?

I think that they are competing for breeding rights

How many males and females do you have?

I've read that there should be four females to one male. This site says 3:1 ratio: Freshwater Aquarium: mollies, male female ratio, male aggression
