  • Random thought....

    If guppies and mollies can breed, and Endlers and guppies can breed, then is it not possible for mollies and Endlers to breed? I ask because I've had a female molly in with Endlers for months and the male Endlers never pay any attention to her or anything. She came preggers (from another molly) from the store but aborted her pregnancy for some reason (the whole reason I got a female was for "free" fish!). Anyways, I just find it weird that they never flirt with her, much less even interact. Maybe the little Endlers are intimated by her size and attitude...? Lol

    Not possible for Killifish to breed with Endlers because Killifish are not livebearers.

            Yes, it is possible for them to crossbreed. Do you have female endlers in the tank? I'm sure the female molly is still pregnant. They can hold sperm for up to 6 months.

              I would think they could but at the same time I could also argue that they cant, HOWEVER Jon usually knows these things lol.

                There are female Endlers in the tank, too, yes. I brought a net full of them in the beginning of winter in case they all died in the ponds (I do actually still have one surviving female in the pond!).

                I've had the Molly for a while now. Close to, or longer than 6 months.

                  I think the reason your male endlers are ignoring the molly is because of the female endlers then. It's easier to chase something nearer their size .

                    Makes sence. I'm still used to crazy-butt guppies that chase and try and mate with ANYTHING. My guys used to go after the Bloodfin Tetras and opaline gourami LOL

                    Actually now, the females and the Molly are in the 50 gallon because the mean female Endlers were chewing the heck out of Dharma's side when she was having really bad swim bladder issues last week. The Molly is in there because she's just a jerk over all and thought Bruce would keep her in line, but he doesnt lol
