Molly fry
 
How long until the baby mollies can mate? and go into the regular tank? (we currently have them in a breeder and the adult fish try to eat it but they hit the plastic, which is quite funny to watch lol) :-P

At about 2 cm they will be fine with other fish the size of mollies. Until they get out of the breeder and get some swimming room they will stay fairly slow growing. These are some of mine at 6 weeks in a 10 gallon, 37 litre, tank. I left the female with them because she was not hunting them. She does chase one once in a while but never seems to catch them.

The ones I have are still too small to show their adult sex much less do any breeding.
