    Is it normal for a male Dalmatian Molly to change from looking Dalmatian to almost all black?

    I noticed in the last couple weeks he has been getting more and more black. He's still healthy and happy. But is this a concern or just that he's maturing? The female Dalmatian is still the same.

    Hard to say without pictures. But, if he is healthy then there'd be nothing to worry about.

    I'll try to take a picture of him tomorrow and post that. He's acting normal. Water parameters are normal too so I won't worry about it. It just kinda surprised me to see him changing!

    Its not something I've ever heard of, though that doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

    Dalmations mollies turn black as they age.

    Just like my gray hairs as I age? Lol
    I'll keep an eye on him and see what happens.

    i have a male who is called a "reverse dalmation" he's mostly black with a few silver spots on his tail, dorsal fin and underbelly. he did have more silver on his body when he was only 3 months but he seems to be getting darker. he does have very nice normal dalmation babies though.

    imageHere are my two Dalmatian mollys. The male used to have a lot of white has turned almost completely black. Looks like black velvet . Chip is the boy...Oreo is the girl.
