Sailfin Molly gender help...
So I bought a new sailfin molly today, but what is its gender?
I will get better pictures later if needed.
I'm planning on buying more of its kind to hang with in a week or 2.
Alright, so I should get some females when I go in next time?
These guys were pretty cheap, $5 at my LFS.
Also, only get females if you want a lot of fry or you have a big enough tank. Just keep that in mind. 3 females would be better if you don't mind do fry just to keep the stress down.
The male will always go after the females trying to breed.
Considering the cheapest fish there is wild feeder guppies at a dollar a dozen, those mollies are pretty cheap.
My sailfin has taken to fallowing the 3 swordtails I have.
I don't really worry about my guppies and swords having babies, my bettas eat the fry...
And my cories never have babies because my pleco eats the eggs....
Could I have just male mollies in the tank or is it an absolute rule to have 2 females per male?
The males really do overwhelm the females with their....intents.
I can add that I just recently got a second female for the male and the first female seems to be doing better. Still seems to be the preferred one to be chased but it is at least better.
