Black Swordtail question
I bought a 2 Black Swordtails at Petco today. I've been looking for these for awhile and could not find them at the other local fish stores in fact they never even heard of Black Swordtails. But when I saw them at Petco today for $2.25 I had to get a pair. I have them in a 55 gal. community tank. The only other livebears in that tank is 2 male Gold dust mollies that I raised from babies. I was wondering if the Gold dust mollies will mate with the black swordtail female? I have had black mollies in the tank at an other time and they never tryed to mate with them. I was wondering if it was safe to have them in with the swordtails as I do not want yellow black swordtail babies.Also should I get 1 more female since these are hard to find. I plan on keeping the fry in the main tank even thought I have a large angelfish and 2 boesmani rainbow fish they are my biggest fish in the tank besides a longfin bushy nosed pleco. I have a nicely planted tank and some of the fry will survive. It will be the survival of the fitest as I do not want an over population and the bigger fish will eat some of the fry.
I have never kept them together but I highly doubt they would breed, and even so the babies would be infertile.
