this will be an ongoing issue if you keep live bearers.
Nothing an acara or even ram couldn't fix.
What is your tank size? I LOVE having fish babies even when it’s bad bc of aggression with my Kribensis. The thing is I had a 20 long with golden panda mollies (2 males, 4 females; the one male hid as a female and was separated so don’t think he fathered any babies). The issue was that 3–4 of them had babies at the same time. So I had no joke 69 babies in the tank. So it was a mess! I do think the babies will thin out on their own, I just know that they can take over a tank FAST. So up to you. I had to rehome them HOWEVER I also had other isssues and had to make the tank free for some other fish so it worked out. How many mollies and what ratio m/f? My kribs have babies now and it’s wreaking havoc on the tank, yet I still love them and am excited. Oh and molly fry are so cute how they pop out mini adults.

O hahahah how many mollies? Just curios not telling you what to do. They’re cute!!
Also here are pics of my Krib babies. The first/second day 6/20
Then today 6/27
There are more than you can see today probably 15 yet you can see how much they’ve thinned out. Fry eats other fry etc etc bc krib parents are incredible and very protective so not many other fishes can get to the babies.
I love them. So imho it’s all about the personalities of the Krib. Crazy as that sounds. I had a large male who terrorized my golden panda mollies bc he was a bully. Then when he mated it was awful. However no fins were nipped. I felt bad bc the mollies aren’t used to that. Like the other Kribs are more likely to not be upset imho. So I think a single krib might be okay. Any thoughts anybody? Also my male was huge.That's awesome! How big do those fish get?
Would they be okay in a tank full of mollies?
Ps if you live near Maryland you can have some of the babies in a few weeks! Otherwise the parent’s will turn on them. I have another tank I can put them in yet I don’t want to have to bc babies will keep coming and the tank can only hold so many! It would have been a lot easier to have all females & no babies yet they’re so darn cute I can’t be disappointed. LoL.
That would be awesome! I hope people agree that they will be okay in the tank. You can always try and then bring them back to me too. Last time they were almost all females and that’s bc of pH. So that’s likely to happen again and that’s way easier.I'm in Pennsylvania so maybe I could get some from you
