I personal don't know how I feel about balloon mollies yet bc I personally have no fish experience. I know with other animals a lot of people have pure breed animals that can have health problems bc of the traits they are bred for. I know people fall on both sides of this discussion but I still wanted to hear what others have to say about it to help me decide. When my tank is finished cycling I was going to stock 3 mollies along with my other stocking (one angle, 6 cories, maybe a gourami but maybe not) I know I am getting golden panda mollies but I was throwing around the idea of one balloon Molly. I would get the regular mollies as female and the balloon as a male. Just wondering fish peeps thoughts about keeping balloon and regular together or keeping balloon mollies at all. As u can tell with my stocking plan I'm not actively looking to breed them but if fry survives I'll accommodate them Also, if I'm not trying to keep fry is it bad to keep male and female?
