I'm not sure how that happened, if it was actually a cross between a koI and a molly. One is a livebearer, the other an egg layer. I was under the impression that the koI molly was just a long-finned molly (perhaps a cross between a lyre-tail and a long-finned guppy).YetI said:Ive never heard of a "Hybrid" fish.. so is this basically crossbreeding of fish? how the heck do you manage this? I saw a koI molly?? is that like molly eggs fertilized by a koI or vice versa? I'm very interested in this.. may have to turn a 10 gallon into a hybrid breeder tank!! muahah...
Yup it's the coloration not the species...lfs need to be specific don't they.Butterfly said:Actually I think it is referring to the color (what color was it). For example KoI angels are not a crossbreed of a koI and an angelfish it is a color and type specification.
Sure do Right now "Koi" is a popular tag to put on fish that are orange,black and white or any mixture of those colors.Allie said:Yup it's the coloration not the species...lfs need to be specific don't they.
Yep they are pretty, and the name refers to color not the fishes genetics.swords3711 said:there are also koI swords, which have beautiful colors and awesome spikes, but are one of the ugliest things i've ever seen
