well we have had two lyretail dalmation mollies one male one female (which was prego when we got her) and we did not find out until the fry were born lol we have her and the two fry we have left along with three fancy finned red tetras in a five gallon because she is prego again and expecting any day...the tetra are going to be moved into our 35 gallon tomorrow. Currently in the 35 gal. we have 2 red dwarf gouramis, our dad dalmation lyretail molly, a female dreamcycle lyretail molly, a common pleco. and a needlenose gar which we aquired yesterday along with 2 feeder guppies for her...we used to have a saltwater setup with a black volitan lionfish and a couple domino damsels as well as a huge turbo snail and a couple emerald crabs

Hi Josh, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
