    I have a female white lyre tail Molly and a black Molly male. Does it matter that one is lyre tail? Will they mate? Can I "help" make it happen? Dying for Dalmatian Molly fry

    They will mate unless the female is already pregnant. That is likely. It doesn't matter that one is lyretail, they will still mate. My Dalmatian fry should come in the next week, good luck on yours.

    A little Barry White might help......

    Actually, the male will try to mate whether the female is pregnant or not. And crossing these two may not get you any Dalmation fry. It depends on the black gene that the one fish is carrying. There are actually a few of them, and they have different effects. My best guess from their appearance is that you won't get any Dalmations from crossing those two fish.

    If you really want Dalmatian fry, get two Dalmatian mollies and breed them
