I sent bluebirdnanny a private message direct asking if she had any photos. I included two longfin gold danios last minute thinking they might fill the top of the tank but I guess she had to take them out as they were aggressive. She has gold dust mollies, blue mickey mouse platys and green moscow guppies.

Transfered to a temp different container on the dainos! And oh I had the Mollie Variety wrong. Uh question now: will Mollie and Platty cross breed on me? With only one female to three male Platty and all female Mollie... I have the youngest Platty male paying a lot of attention to one of the Mollie female. This won't happen will it?

The Platys and Mollys cannot breed together. They are different families. I am almost sure there is a male Gold Dust Molly in there. He is the most yellow. I have such trouble telling young fish apart. Their lower fins are not always so obvious when young. I have even seen female swords that are a year old change sex to male. Never seen a male go to female tho. The fry you describe in your other post sounds like gold dust. The fry usually start mostly black with a little gold then mature to their true color which is usually mostly gold with some black.

So did I but the one I thought was male turned out to be a female with a black strip right down the middle of the fin. LOL SHE IS THE FATTEST right now and expecting to pop again soon.

It is a relief the two won't interbreed!

I think I have young fry of all three variety. At least two or three short stout blue bodies, platy, I keeps seeing. Then consistantly can see 7 guppy at once. Then have to watch to see at least 3 - 6 at once for suspected mollies.

I have a battery Azoo Air pump so may take some of the fry to my sons and see what the old store I used to trade with down there thinks. How old would they have to be?
