One Spot Molly Care Guide


One Spot Molly
(Poecilia vivipara)

Common names:
One spot molly, Guaru,

Size: Males 4-5cm, Females 5-7cm.

pH: 7.0 – 8.0

Tempº: 26ºC - 28ºC

Tank region: All layers

Notes: This livebearer can be very hard to locate, but once it is found it is a very good fish; bearing all the typical livebearer traits: prolific breeding, small size, good looks, peaceful temperament and fair hardiness. Like other livebearers, it is important to keep the two sexes apart to prevent your tank being overstocked, and when they are to be bred they need a ratio of 1 male to every 3 females – to prevent combat between males and females being bullied to much.
