Help on Balloon Molly size!

kmlico

guys what is the real size of balloon molly? internet is saying 3inches or more, but i never seen one reach that size. maybe a jumbo line can reach that size.im just worried if i get too many and they will grow more than 3inches.

I have had mollies get 3-4" inches fairly easy, but never kept balloon mollies, but would imagine 3" is very do-able for them as well, provided health and nutrition

It is possible that balloon mollies can grow up to 3 inches or more. But in general, they'll stay smaller once the belly starts to become proportional. Balloon mollies are not born with a large belly, that part will develop while growing up. So, 3 inches sized balloon mollies can be considered being rare.

In my personal experience, my full-grown balloon mollies have all been between 1.5-2 inches!

Correct.
