    Hi all, Looking for some advice. Had tank set up for about 3 months. Steuggled with ammonia until a week-2 weeks ago. Have 2 mollies and they were the first fish in the tank. They have been acting odd and distressed the past 4 days. Both hiding and its very out of character. They're also...

    I just got a couple of Molly fish for my community 30gallon. It's very well established, is over a year old, and I tested the water before putting them in. No ammonia, nitrites or nitrates. pH right around 7. The one Molly looks perfectly content and is happily swimming around and healty...

    I had a couple of gold doubloon mollies in a tank and after a bit I had a few more. Now those babies are pretty well grown and they have started poking about with one another. I have noticed some new babies swimming about the tank and have started to wonder if I should let these fish keep...

    I've set up a new tank and got a female platy. I'm only stocking 2 or 3 of this family eventually. Does anyone happen to know whether a male molly will chase a female platy? They wont produce anything, obviously, but I will get a female to keep the stress level low if need be. And I...

    So..... I came home today and as I was feeding the fish I saw 4 small fry swimming at the top. We have three mollies: 2 male and 1 female. I went ahead and ground up some fish food to a fine powder for the babies. I then saw a 5th fry hiding in the substrate. So I am wondering if this had ever...

    Sorry for the strange post, but I would like some input. This Molly was sick when I got her. Naive me, I had no idea. I have nursed her and treated her for parasites. She is super constipated compared to my other Mollys, so I feed her lots of greens. She is a green pea-aholic. She has...

    Can I put a Dwarf Gouramis in a tank with Black Mollys and Neon Tetras? It depends on what article you read. Some say yes others say no. Can I have just one Gouramis? Again some say a male by itself is fine. Some say a pair is good and others say larger groups. Yet others say if there are...

    Hi everybody, I am located in Troy, NY. I have a 30g tank and I started with 4 mollies 2 years ago. 2 black and 2 dalmatian. The tank is heavily planted. Needless to say, they started breeding like crazy. I already sold them several times to some local aquarium shops but the production is...

    Hi, I have 4 almost-fully-grown mollies. Their mother, now dead, I had bought unbeknownst to me that she was pregnant. All but three of them survived, and I re-homed another. One of my mollies is turning orange on her head and back. Her mother was kept with orange mollies, and i was wondering if...

    I bought a small 1/2" red claw crab. It's in brackish water at about 1.002 now since the store kept it in fresh. I have seen parameters for the water being anywhere from 1.002 to 1.005. What is best? Also, for the depth of the water, I've seen anywhere from 3 or 4 inches up to 8 inches. I...

    Basically, I'd like to know how many lyretail mollies could be kept in a 30 gallon (the long type, not the more cubic shape). I'm not wanting shoals of babies, so I'd be looking at all females or all males (I know females can store sperm, but at least there'd only be a couple batches of babies...
