"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: http://livebearers.org/

I am finding out lots of stuff about the LFS variety's of Mollys I will let you know more as I proceed with my research. Thanks for your input.
