hmmmm... thats strange... I just thought to check aqadvisor and it said that mollies were suitable for 10 gallons. I thought for sure they would say its not suitable. It even showed that 1 black molly puts in less of a load on the stocking level than guppies.

I certainly do not agree with that recommendation. The common black molly can attain 3 inches for a male, and 5 and even 6 inches for a female. A 10g is just not sufficient space for one of these.

The fact that people's fish may not attain these sizes is more likely because they are in too small a space or inappropriate water parameters/conditions, and they fail to develop properly and die early.
