Balloon Molly Fry
 
Hey,
I woke up one day and there were balloon molly fry all around my tank, I expected it but didnt get my breeder box in time, now I plan on selling them. I was wondering whether the mother balloon molly is going to keep reproducing on regular a basis if so I will keep the mum.

Hi dmuddl. It is quite possible that the Mum can still have more babies for several months to come. Females store sperm for a long time and do not need a male present to drop more fry.
Aren't they cute? Raise your temp a couple of degrees and feed 3 times a day with crushed flake or I use baby fish food purchased at the LFS.
