well it turns out that my female red calico Layla has become Larry. Yesterday while watching the tank he stuck his gonopodium out and chased Marty off. I don't know how I missed it the day I bought him/her. And no females in at LFS till wednesday. Anyone else ever have this issue? lol

haha its annoying and funny, but watching the 2 males play the " whos got the bigger thing " game is hilarious. Marty may be small but he's showing whos boss. I love the dalmation mollies, would they interbreed with platys?

Nope! Mollies ang guppies will crossbreed (with sterile young), and Platies and Swordtails will crossbreed.
