Heres my balloon molly... I'm not sure what type she is. She has yellow streaks running along her sides and yellow spots on her top (dorsal?) fin.

Here is my old molly tank that I no longer have in operation. All the fish in this tank are the second generation from a first generation that succumb to ich. These pics are about a year old now, at the time I didnt know how to fight ich, or really what it even was. the third generation from this tank are currently living in a nice pond set up in my neighborhood for ornamental fish.

John Locke

Here are two really bad pictures of John Locke, my Molly fry who was partially eaten. He's eating well and learning to move around. Part of his right pectoral fin is growing back. Unfortunately, he's still only about 1cm in length and the tank is unlighted. Getting a decent photo is really hard. Maybe I'll try with my HD video camera.


PICT1902.JPG


PICT1906.JPG

The mess at the bottom of the tank, by the way, is fry food. I have to scatter it everywhere so he can actually get some with his mouth.

Hey there. First post here (Hi). Loving the wealth of information. Great site!
My Wife and I are proud owners of a new 16 gallon bowfront tank.
I've had aquariums in the past, but not for over 15 years. I forgot how much I love aquatics.

We've just cycled our tank with only one casualty (RIP Lingen [a.d. frog), and set up a little 5 gallon hospital/quarantine tank (which is cycling).
We've got a couple guppies, a pleco, an african dwarf frog, and of course, 2 balloon bellied mollies.
Meet Jabar (gold) and Stanley (black). Bow (guppy) snuck in the first pic. He has dominance issues..

Looking forward to reading up on the site.

Cheers

Algae chip caused a feeding frenzy in my juvenile Molly tank. It took them a while to eat it but it was totally gone in about 20 minutes. The algae chip stayed cover with fish the whole time.

My two little devils...

Present you with my two lyre-tale mollies. The one with the most white belly I'm pretty sure is pregnant about to pop, the other one although I'm not a 100% sure looks female and is getting bigger. Love the pic of her back is l;oke watch me as I leave! They love to chase each other and are nonstop day and night! Love them

Went shopping today for my first trio of balloon mollies.
Actually took a good hour/+ round trip to a store looking for dally balloon mollies and glad I did!
3 of the best looking ones I've been able to find.

My male is pictured to the left in the 'trio' picture while the females are to the right.
The lyretail is one female and the dalmatian is another female.

I'm very excited to see what the lyre tail will throw.
I love the dalmatian girl too, so hopefully she gives some pretty babies as well.

I'm still brushing up on the genetic side of things, so hopefully I can learn more on color combinations and outcomes here. I just wanted to get good-looking/not so common parents.
No one local carried anything but small orange/silver balloon mollies with really short and funny looking fins. Bleh.

I have had my tank running for about a week now...very cool. It has been a long time and I didn't realize how much I missed having a fish tank. The dalmation Molly was pregnant, but didn't look like she was anywhere near ready, but I was wrong. I managed to save 3 of the fry and they are doing great so far.

HI everyone Newer here so slow going. Trying to get some help in regard to my balloon molly.

Here's her pic - I can't tell if she's preg or not. I've red some gravid spots may turn red, black, dark blue or gray. I have moved her to a breeder box until I can figure out what's going on.

I hope someone can help...

Took just a bit ago. Notice her tube kinda outward, also those spots... what might be wrong? Or is she preg?

Hopefully they'll breed and I'll have some baby mollies too!

Picture time again! The light yellow female with the black dorsal is new and the minute I put her in the others seemed to take to her. They've been clustered together for the past hour. Pretty cute! They'll start their pecking order miffs any minute though haha. I can't wait til her color improves because I think she's going to be one very pretty fish!

So here are some pics of the whole crew!

The male is Ludo.
The small dark marble girl is Muppet.
The light yellow (getting darker every day!) and grey spotted girl is Scully.
And the new girl is Willow.

We started with 5 molly fish in November.
2 Black Molly's 1m1f
1 Dalmatian f
1 Creamsicle Lyretail f
1 Gold Dust f

We now have 3 adults and over 100 babies. We get new fry about every 3-4 weeks. We also have 2 otocinclus and maybe 1000 blue ramshorn snails.

Oh my goodness!! I spotted two molly fry in the tank this morning for the first time! I'm not set up to deal with that!!

Here is a picture of two of our female mollies.

?temp_hash=d8f9e9a2a4895532d55d607610eca81b.jpg

The male putting on a display for the female. He doesn't often fully extend his fin like this!
