new to my aquarium

one of my mollies gave birth i now have twenty or so young mollies. removed adults from that tank. the new arivals are swimming around and also seem to raken interest in me. they seem to already know i mean food.
also on another note. i have been feeding freeze dried blood worms from tetra.... started to see young live ones on the gravel now.

all are doing fine and i have counted about fifteen little ones swimming around.
three are all black and the rest are yellow faced some with touches of black and some yellow and clear. dont know which mollie is the mother but my guess is the gold dabloon however she still looks very plump.

Well it was monday morning when i found all the baby mollies and so far all have survived. all the adults are now back in with them and they seem to be ignoring the young... the male even swims thru the school of them without reaction from eather.
I have four black ones two with greyish silver faces then the others seem to be a mix of calico to yellow and clear. seventeen in all.

thinking the second batch may b platys instead. they are redish in color and kinda look like my sunset platy. maby i got lucky and she was bread with another sunset platy before i got her.... howeve wish my male would become the dad of some but have never seen him mate with any of the platy females... however he did show some interest in one... maby he did and just likes a little privacy when he does. can only keep my fingers crossed.

btw they are all still alive and after a week and half they are about a quarter the size of the male... the females are not trying to eat them so some of the young have moved in with the females.... so far they all seem to be female. the mollies that is. the second batch have doubled in size but are still very small. supprising the male mollie has been in the tank since day one and has had no interest in eating the young.... is this only a trate of the females?

Can you move aquarium decorations around in a established aquarium? ShawnMcc Freshwater and Tropical Fish 6 06-02-2009 01:41 PM
