Growth is going to be the REAL test of patience. Unfortunately, my platies (and my cousin's) Take more than a year to reach adult size.

Who say's that you can't have more than one tank? Just get one more... just one...

I agree. Doesn't seem to be growing at all, maybe a little. I can't keep up to get an accurate count... Not til they get bigger.

I hope you will be happy with the results! Most color morphs are really pretty and are not sold in stores. My cousin (I'm sorry that I mention him so much) bred several Molly generations. He first bred a silver and a black molly to get a bunch of dalmatian Mollies, then he bred the dalmatian mollies with orange mollies to create the orange-bellied dalmatian molly.

I have a tank with guppies. I started with 3 females and 1 male. Now I have way too many to count.

That's an unfortunate truth with livebearers...

That sounds so pretty! I think my Dalmatian Molly is peg. If she is she was bred with just a black Molly. Probably just get more black Mollies lol

I would guess you would either get a mix of dalmatians and black ones, or, with a bit of luck, all dalmatians with bigger/more black spots.
