So once mated they can have babies for a while like guppy's mollies, platys, ect can? like they can store sperm, cause i asked the guy for 2 females and 1 male but it looks like all 3 ended up to be females, one is really fat, and he said they have 1 baby every 3 days, so hopefully every three days ill get 1 baby from each female and then hopefully one of the babies will be a male so i can keep th ereproduction going :D
I asked if i start to get overrun by livebearers if i can bring some in, and he said yes and he will give me store credit for the, :) This is an all fish store :) so im happy with that
