    Hi! I know this might sound stupid, but is this fish a molly? She never hangs out with our other mollies, our males never breed with her, and she does look slightly more pointy and diamond-shaped than our female mollies (who’re more round)! We’re thinking she might be a platy, a sailfin or a...

She’s also been chasing my other pregnant guppy and...

    Hi, just over a month ago we bought four mollies, two males and two females. We didn’t know at the time about male to female ratios, and it wasn’t until researching about why the mollies keep fighting/chasing each other that we learnt that we should really have more females for that many males...

    We have a dalmatian in the same tank with her who's a bit bigger than she is, definitely hoping she's pregnant, cus I love fry, but we're not sure! Any advice helps! (She's very hungry, but she has always been, we even named her Pork cus of it, hanging by the heater as well!) The dalmatian is...

    This spot came up about 2 weeks ago, and we thought that they were pregnant. The black balloon Molly's came first, two weeks ago, the dalmatian balloon Molly's popped up a couple days ago. The dalmatian is 100% pregnant, the black molly, we're not sure. We just need some help understanding...

    So for a backstory, I had gotten a female and a male molly and had been told they were both females. We found out the male was a male when I saw them doing the nasty. Anyway, they did it a lot to the point where I felt like it was stressing the female out. So we did her a favor and got 2 new...

    Hi all i recently just got my first tank in September. I had comets in it for the longest time. About a month ago I added 6 mollies And 3 corys. on the 26th I removed the comets (as they were too large) and I’ve had 2 mollies die on me! I also added some more water as the water was getting low...

    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...

    Hello! My sister's boyfriend's sister's (I know it's complicated) mollies had some babies, and my sister, being the vegan fish owner she is, wanted to try raising them. This means that I get some mollies! I had a betta fish a couple years ago, but that's about the extent of my experience with...

    I am checking the water tomorrow as I usually get it done by my local pet-store, but so far, I only have one sick fish - the rest seem to be just fine. My black male Molly (affectionatly named Midnighter) is sick. He has been rather slow for about 2 days and would stick to the top left corner...

    We have a balloon Molly who has developed three bumps on her side - a large one and two smaller ones. They look like warts or something, they don't have any particular texture, no fuzz. They look like growths of some kind, maybe underneath the scales because they aren't discolored at all. She...

    Hello everyone! This morning I woke up to feed my fish, when I noticed my molly (male) was on the floor. He must've jumped out of the tank, fell onto the cabinet to then fall on the floor. However, when trying to pick him up he was almost completely dried up, but somehow alive. Out of stress I...

    I know it sounds horrible. One of my Mollys gave birth, and I have tried to give away my babies for free. But leaving in Canada doesn't seem to have as many outlets like USA does. I still have like 30 babies in a 37.5 gallon tank, with the about 10 of my adult fish. They are getting bigger and...

    Hello, I've had this happen in the past, but I'm worried right now because I just bought new fish yesterday and already lost one. One of my new Mollys (Creamsicle type), has been swimming erratically and whenever it (The anal fish is so confusing the shop keeper couldn't figure it out either)...

In the last month, I lost two Mickey Mouse, one Bumblebee and one Molly. On Monday while cleaning my tank I found a baby fry, dark orange, thinking the mama had to be my...

    So I have a Gold Dust Molly, that I noticed today is kinda fat. I was thinking she's bloated, but when looking at photos online, some photos that look like her apparently they are pregnant. I'm put her in a separate tank right now with a couple of peas to see if maybe she's bloated and...

    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...
