Moss is also good, as are other plants that are bushy and provide cover.
Have fun with your babies when they arrive! I have 40+ guppies and 20+ platys that were born last Monday - so fun to see these tiny guys swiimming around the tank. I have them separated from the adults, so they don't have to hide, and they look like a cloud in the water sometimes, there are so many.
Im going to be putting the mom in her own tank to have the babies in and take her out after she has them so i dont have to worry about any of my other fish trying to eat them
But i do have to ask
can two silver mollies have different colored babies?
