So back in December I bought i went to the LFS
and bought two Molly fry ... 1 male 1 female is what I asked for. The LFS
guy studied the two pretty closely (prob bc they were so small) and said yep- here you go. 1 M and 1 F. As they grew I could have sworn I saw one with a gono and one withe the fanned anal fin (F).
Then I added another female in Jan since I know you should have more females than males... Ideally 1:3 or 1:4.
WELL ... To my surprise i recently noticed the original "female" flexing good old mr. gonopodium! So now, I have 2 males and 1 female in the tank. Im pretty attached to all 3 of them but know I need to make a change. Tank size is 26 gallons. I also have 9 neon tetras in there.
Can I add 5 females without overstocking this tank? (total would be 17 fish in a 26G. 8 mollies and 9 neons).
I would consider an all molly tank. If I were to return my 9 neons how many more mollies could I safely add?
