  • Molly Surprise!

    Well I was cleaning my daughter's 10 gallon divided and on the side with her balloon molly I saw some tiny little fry! There is only one Molly in there and we picked it up about 3 weeks ago. Evidently she was preggo! Now what do I do with all these little fry?

    I let the other fish have some sushi. Or if you have a small tank, you could grow them out and take them to your LFS if they will take them.

        lol...thanks. I was thinking of just letting the circle of life takes it's natural course but my daughter wants to save them. I've got them in a little box right now but that can't stay that way for long. I might throw a filter and some water in my empty 15 gallon and grow them out.

              I like how you can kind of see spots but it's almost like they are tiger striped! They were hard little buggers to catch for sure. I did end up cleaning out that 15 gallon to set up a nursery. I just need to get a filter for it and then I can get them out of that little hanging box thingy.

                  It certainly was unexpected! It's the only molly I have in any tank and boom...little fry. I got like 9 for the price of 1! If they all survive of course

                          lol...I've now learned I just need to have more reproducing fish to get more tanks. There's not a snowballs chance in a warm fiery place that my wife would let me put up another tank unless it was to protect some cute little baby fish from becoming part of the food chain!

                              Found another little fry guy in there this morning. I think it must have just popped out over night. That brings the total so far to 9.
