Post "Molly Genetics" need info!

I have been trying to research "Molly" Genetics especially P. sphenophs, color variations. Does anyone her know anything about them.

I have Black, Pandas, Black Golddust, Golddust, Marble, Orange tailed Marble, Jaguar and Silver Molly's, but need more info on genetics!

I'm sorry but can you clarify what exactly you'd like help on?

Mostly the relationship of the different color morphs of the species P. sphenops and if they are a result of crossbreeding with P. latipinnia or are true P. sphenops.

I believe it depends upon which species you purchase and from where. P. Sphenops is often crossbreed with P. latipinnia because it often creates a more disease resistant molly. I believe it has little to no affect on the color variations though.

Sorry I don't know that much about the relationship of the different color morphs. hopefully someone who has more experience will pop in.

In our profile of the Common Molly [click the shaded name] I mentioned that some of the colour varieties are the result of cross-breeding the two species. This I obtained from a biologist. But I've no idea which, so can't offer much more. Perhaps contacting the American Livebearers Association, here's their site:

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