Calico molly fry - in need of new homes!

Hi all,

This is my first post, hope it comes through. We have 50+ molly fry in a very happy, 40 gallon planted tank and I'm trying to find some of them new homes, as the tank is getting crowded. Our family lives in Westchester County, NY and I'm hoping to trade/donate with anyone who lives within an hour's drive so I can manage to re-home these fish without having to ship them.

I would post in RAOK but have never shipped fish and really wanted to try local.

Am posting a photo of one of the calico fry (orange with black spots and a white belly), and its mother (also calico). The calico ones are two months old and about 1 to 1.25 inches long. We also have silver fry but will wait till they're older to trade or donate them.

If you have any tips for how to rehome molly fry please share them! Our LFS will take some, but the tanks there are small and bare...was hoping to find a hobbiest to take them.

I want to say yes, but my tank is a little crowded now, and I'm about 2 months away from having my other 29g ready. Maybe we could trade something in a few months. My daughter has some berried cherry shrimp, should be ready in 2 months to trade, lol. Good luck with finding a home!

Joe, that could work! I'll check back with you in a couple months. Some of the newborn fry would be big enough by then to see what color they are. We do have a batch of 25+ golden panda molly fry. We'll be moving the male molly to another tank soon, but at this rate (4 batches of fry, 4 female mollies) there will certainly be many different colors to choose from.

We are interested in your daughter's shrimp, as we don't currently have any.

best, Emily
