Question Are there any blue mollies??

I just had to ask, my daughter keeps bugging me about this, insisting there just has to be....

I've never seen one, but maybe, would be pretty

Hi Tasha, I don't believe there are any natural Blue Mollies, if any exist they are probably the dyed variety (an evil trade). maybe someone will come up with some more info. sorry I can't be more helpful.

Pete

If she wants a AWESOME blue fish, get a blue guppy

I just bred a molly that has a blue hue to it. It is only about an inch long right now, but I plan on breeding it as my attempt for a blue molly. Will try to post pics later this evening.

For a blue fish, how about a neon dwarf gourami ?
There are some really nice guppies about too.

If you still wanted something in the same ballpark as a Molly, you could look into a Blue Platy. They're almost the same shape but Platys are a bit smaller.
