Yah sailfin molly. a nice one too make sure you keep it in the right tank.they dont need a big one but you should have some things like plants(non real if you arent prepared for live ones) and tempeture regulation is a must...as is it with most fish but you can click on the blue that says sailfin molly and read the profile and your on your way to a healthy fish and a good relationship with your fish

Give a man a fish feed him for a day.Teach a man how to fish feed him for a lifetime....same applies for fish keeping.Learning is the first and most important part.

thanks for the tip. The lady that gave him to me said he was aggressive with her guppies so was a bit leary but thought i would try wiyh fish : 1 guppy, 2 tetras, 2 minnows, cray fish and pleco. I left him in the bag for a few hours to get used to them and since i let him out he's getting along fine with them!!
