Oooooh, crowntail lover, I have LOTS of molly questions!
I am working on setting up a new 10gal for my betta and would like to get him some friends when it's done. My BF and I both love black mollies, though I've never owned them and his mom did most of the fish caring when he was growing up.
We are thinking of our betta, a few black mollies and a snail.
How many mollies should we get? I was thinking 3 or 4, I don't want to overcrowd the tank.
Can/should they all be female? Will they get along?
If the tank is cycled, should they all be added at once, or a couple at a time?
At first I was assuming we would get the tank set up and give our betta time to get used to his new home, then introduce tank mates. Last night, my BF suggested setting the mollies and snail up first, then introducing the betta (he can come back to his solitary tank if he doesn't get along with the rest). Do you have a suggestion about which to put in the tank first?
Sorry if I bombarded you
I have been daydreaming about these cute little mollies.
