hey everyone! iím new to this website but iíve had fish basically my whole life, but i have some questions about my mollies if anyone could help answer them!
fyi, hereís my current tank setup:
10 (maybe 15?) gallon tank
1 pleco (not sure of specific breed)
2 dalmatian mollies
2 silver lyretail mollies
first question; so basically one of my fish had babies about a week after i bought them. i guess the pet store either didnt realize or just didnít let me know, but i still have no idea which one it was (kinda crazy i know) but here are some pictures of the mollies and the fry since i know it wasnít the pleco lol.
second question; can anyone let me know what the sexes of my mollies are? based on the research ive done, i think the more lightly spotted dalmatian molly is a male, while all of the others are female, but one of my silver mollies is much larger than the other, and i dont know if that indicates it might be a male? iím not sure.
last question; if both of my silver mollies are female, why is one of them so much larger? are they just getting more food? are they pregnant? i have no idea whether they got pregnant at the pet store or in my tank either. just so many questions lol
