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).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.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.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.there are also koi swords, which have beautiful colors and awesome spikes, but are one of the ugliest things i've ever seen
