- - Molly Fry
|dancexonxwater ||04-06-2010 07:51 PM |
I had two black mollies that gave birth to a molly fry that is now aprox. 6 months old. While both of the parents are black, the offspring is white with black spots. Will this continue through till adult hood? Or is it more like a dalmation molly now...
What reasons are there for the different color?

one female black molly with one male black molly. I imagine there were many fry, however, i only found one and that's the one i have now, six months later.

One of the grandparentd would have been a dalmation.

Genetics would be the reason! The good ol' punett square with dominant and recessive alleles would show you why that happens :)

Eh, my black balloon molly (whom the only male in the tank now is a orange male, tho there was a black and white one before), gave birth to white with black spot fry the last 2 times now. Your female may still be pregnant from the fish store. =o
