Is My Dalmation Molly Fish Pregnant? | My Aquarium Club

The Molly is a tropical fish that prefers a little salt in their water. A teaspoon of aquarium salt per 5 gallons of water will go a long way in helping them. You may also see them in saltwater tanks from time to time. There is a local reef store here that keeps black molly fish in a regular saltwater tank with similar sized species. The molly is a very attractive tropical fish that comes in many different colors such as orange, green and black. Some of the more popular varieties include the sailfin, balloon and the dalmation.

I had a Dalmatian Molly back when I first got my tank started. She was very nice. Unfortunately, she died due to unknown causes. I only had her for like 3 weeks. To replace her, I got a male. His name was Bull. He got that name because he bullied the other fish in the tank. Bull wasn't nice. I don't buy Dalmatian Mollies anymore because I'm afraid that they'll end up like Bull. I gave him to my sister, and then he died. He got sucked to the filter tube. But, they can be nice. I just don't like buying them because I don't want what happened with Bull to happen again. He did, however spawn with my black lyretail molly and I got a fry out of the deal. She is very happy and healthy, and she must have acquired her mother's attitude, because she is very nice and wouldn't hurt a fly.

Molly fish are some of the coolest aquarium fish on the planet

I woke up one morning to 5 new baby fish. I have no idea who the mother is. I didn't know any of my fish were pregnant. I have them in a breeding container now, and they are just the cutest things. I feed them ground up flake food. I place the food in a plastic baggy, grind it up, then dip one end of a toothpick into the tank water, and then into the powdered food. I then dip that end back into the water right in front of the babies and they gobble it up! All I need to know now is who their mother is? I have 2 white mollies, 1 orange molly, and 1 dalmation molly. I wonder what the babies will look like? I have more fish in this aquarium as well: , , , both male and female, , ... It remains a mystery! But a fun one!
