The Molly seems to have a slightly lower resistance to fungal infections and Ich than other fish. They will also get the shimmies, a disorder which causes them to shiver and shake. Both of these can be prevented and treated by the addition of 1 to 1.25 teaspoons of aquarium salt.Mollies are subject to the same diseases as other tropical fish. The best way to proactively prevent disease is to give them the proper environment and a well balanced diet. The more closely the aquarium mimics their natural habitat, the less stress the fish will have, making them healthier and happier. A stressed fish is more likely to acquire disease.Anything you add to your tank can introduce disease. Not only other fish but also plants, substrate, and decorations can harbor bacteria. Take great care and make sure to properly clean or quarantine anything that you add to an established tank so as not to upset the balance. For information about fish diseases and illnesses, see .

Many people may look at the size of Molly Fish and assume that they do not require a large tank. Unfortunately for the fish that are purchased by these owners, this is incorrect information. A fish tank size is not determined by the size of the fish because most species of fish will continue to grow until they die. Some grow at slower rates than others and therefore stay small longer. Molly Fish are also not a “lone wolf” kind of fish. They enjoy the company of similar types of fish as well as other Mollies. Molly Fish General Information. Water parameters. Origin etc.

These are livebearers so it is fairly easy. Adding a little aquarium salt will help. Do you have a pregnant molly fish? Read the article for more information. That article talks about guppies and swordtails, but the process is very similar for the Molly fish babies.The balloon molly fish has a life expectancy similar to those of other types of mollies kept in captivity: three to five years. This life span is based on ideal conditions, such as brackish water or saltwater rather than freshwater, which can make a balloon molly fish susceptible to disease and illness. If this type of molly is kept with other fish, the balloon molly may need special monitoring to stay alive and healthy. The fish's large belly makes him a slow swimmer and feeder, and larger fish may prevent him from getting enough food. There is no information available regarding a balloon fish's life expectancy in the wild, because the variety is a man-made creation -- no such specimens develop in the wild.Most species of Molly Fish require the same types of food, habitat, and water temperature. However, some Molly species may be slightly more finicky about their care. It is important to know and understand this information before purchasing equipment or fish.Dalmatian mollies 12/17/10
I was wondering if Dalmatian mollies grow larger than Blackmollies??
At the fish store I was at the Black Mollies were listed as growing upto 2 1/2 inches and 4 inches for the Dalmatians. Since it was a big boxstore I doubted their information, but maybe they were right. AreDalmatians related to Sailfins which apparently grow to 6 inches? Alsoare female Black Mollies more peaceful than any other molly?? ThankYou!!

of shortfin varieties, and 10 cm/4 inches or perhaps slightly more inthe case of Sailfin mollies. The big Giant or Yucatan Sailfin Mollies(Poecilia velifera) are relatively scarce in the hobby, though they maybe obtained through good aquarium shops and fish clubs.

Whenever you see Margaret Mary (Molly)'s name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at where Fish-844 is Margaret Mary (Molly)'s unique . The female Common Molly can have between 20 to 150 fry, and the female Sailfin Molly will generally produce 10 to 100 fry. The Mexican Sailfin Molly can produce as many as 200 fry, but 20-60 young is more common. For more information, see the guide for breeding Livebearing Fish: .
