Molly question

I have a 2-2.5 inch male silver Molly and I want to add some females. I'm worried as the female mollies at my lfs are around 1 inch. That seems like a big size difference, will he hurt them while attempting to mate with them?

No, he won't hurt them! I've kept Mollies from the bittiest of fry, various stages of juvies, and adults in the same tank with no issues!

Just be sure to get at least two females for every male - and before you bring them home, figure out what you plan to do with all their beautiful babies - cuz' they will have them! ^.^

My Molly is in a saltwater tank and there is a bangai that would love to see some fry. I was planning on getting 2 or 3 females anyway. Thanks for the response.
