    Hey guys, I have 40 mollie fry in my tank with 4 adult mollies, 1 platy, 1 sucker fish, and 1 upside down catfish. I have another tank I am trying to get ready to put my fry in but my nitrites don't seem to be going down. It's at 0.25ppm at the moment and there's >1ppm of ammonia. I've tried...

    Hey guys, just wondering. I had 3 Platys now I only have 1. There is 4 mollies in the tank with her. Will she be okay? Or does she need fish of her own kind to be happy?

    Hi there, I’m new to this group and had a concern in my tank. I saw a few discussions here about this but didn’t really get an answer out of them and my situation was different than the others I’ve seen. So to start I have a 20 gal freshwater tank with rock and wood and live plants. I have a...

    I just noticed today that one of my mollies is having trouble swimming. He is active, and comes to the surface to eat, however his tail kinda droops down behind him, almost as if he can't move it. He definitely is working harder to get around. I have 2 other fully grown mollies and 9 babies in...

    Good Evening All. This is my first time seriously keeping fish. I bought a 10 gallon tank from petsmart. The full starter kit from Top Fin. Came with a heater, filter/pump, thermometer, and light. I put gravel at the bottom (off hand I don't know the total amount but it was the recommended...

    Hello! I'm planning my first 10 gallon freshwater tank, and I've decided I'd like to try to keep a few mollies. I'm new to fishkeeping, so thank you in advance for your guidance! My plan so far: 2 short-finned mollies (both female) 3-4 cory cats (pygmy maybe, to lower the bioload?) 3 amano...

    Hello everyone! I have been out of the fish keeping game for about 2 years now. I wasn't able to move my tanks with me when I moved from Florida to Texas, thankfully I am getting tons of tanks for Christmas this year! I got into fish keeping because I like everything about it, simply put it...

  11. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I'm playing with my stocking calculator. Considering a betta sorority, or a large group of male guppies. Maybe mollies. I am cycling, planting, and establishing my tank first, so it will be a while before I actually buy fish. :) What would YOU put in a 46 gal?
  12. Livebearers
    I do not want to deal with babies! I'm wondering if it's OK to keep a group of all males.

    My son is doing a science fair project. He is trying to breed a hybrid. Here is the link to the project idea. The project calls for male Guppies and female Endlers. The problem is that I need pure strain Endlers. I have only been able to track down juveniles in our area. The project has to be...

  16. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    I recently came into ownership of a 29 gallon with a 75 gallon filter with a red claw crayfish, 3 mollies, and 7 platies. I was wondering if I could add any more fish to this tank? If I could I was interested in Bloodfin Tetras or more platies. Though honestly I am interested in any fish, just...

    I just bought these two ladies and I have no idea if they are pregnant or just fat. Please let me know! sorry these aren't the best pictures, these girls like roaming. :-P also I have no idea why these turned sideways, sorry!
  19. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    So I bought some mollies, they are a little on the plump side so I don't know if they are pregnant or just fat. Input is appreciated!:-) Sorry that the pictures are not the best (also I have no idea why they turned), It's kinda hard to take pics of these little fellas.
  20. Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    So I've cycled my new 20 gallon tank, and I want to place mollies and swordtails together. I have two questions, though. I've gotten mixed messages on whether this is a good idea; some say they're great together, others say it was awful. Will the two work well together? Also, I was thinking...
