Sailfin molly
 
I have been looking at the fish profiles and noticed that it says sailfin mollies do not eat fry. . . is this correct ?
How are they any different to the normal Mollies apart from the obvious sailfin ? They are still the same genes right ?

I had mollies years ago. They did not ever eat their fry that I could determine. I suppose it always possible they could, if they were hungry enough! "Never" is a very absolute statement, bur I'd say it's very unlikely they would eat the young.

I must have the only mollies that eat there fry then ! I witnessed the balloon Molly munching on 2 fry last night . I feed them flakes in the morning , brine shrimp at 1pm and flakes or peas in the evening so its not like they are starved .

Oh no... they eat their fry... i have witnessed it multiple times with mine and also almost everyone i have talked to says the same thing.

Also they are not vegetarians...

I have made and "edit" to that profile but it has not been approved yet i was actually beginning to wonder how one goes about getting it approved....
