Now that was QUICK!

As most of you who read the other post know i just got my Pair of Chocolate Sail fin Molly's, which even with molly breeding rates are hard to come by, and are considered Rare. I bought ONE pair.

Well get this i have these molly's 1 day only 1 day and i have FRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i know the fry are not from the Lyre tail i put in because some of them have red eyes and the ONLY fish i have with red eyes are the pair of sail fins!

Im loving this!

Lucky, but the female was probably impregnated long ago.

Oh ya no doubt, considering molly's can have babies up to 8 times with only one breeding! Just lucky that i got a prego molly to start!

Oh heck yea!

I bought a pair of a rare swordtail a long while back. I was excited that the female was already pregnant.

Too bad the offspring were hybrids because the seller kept them in with different variants!

Ouch if you were wanting to breed True and Pure strain.


Im aiming to create something that has already been done, but i still wanna do it. i want to breed my Own Lyre Tail,Sail Fin Molly.

Im wondering what i will get, my Lyre Tail is a Solid Black Female and My Sail Fin Male is a Chocolate, And i also have a Pure Blood Female Chocolate female with him.Didn't want one female being "mated to death". I have taken the Fry with Red eyes and put them in a breeder net, and i did have some fry with black eyes, i transferred them to my 55g Community molly heavy tank. I am aiming at keeping the red eye gene at least in my sail fins.
