Arrow Mollies n' Platies!

I call them "The healthy alternative to Goldfish", because of their simular colors. Some to most mollies ive noticed have blue eyes too. I love my two fish! I have a femmy platy, and a male molly. Embar is an orange molly, and he loves to swim around and pick on Tetris, a salmony patterned platy. She sometimes chases Embar. They both have blue eyes, and are very beautiful. Will post pics!

They sound fun! :) Remember that both of these fish are social and prefer to be in groups of three of their own kind. :) What size tank do you have?

a 10 gallon. I used to have 8 fish in there (Embar and Tetris had a girlfriend n boyfriend),2 guppies and 2 bettas. Since they all died, we haven't had time to go out and get more.

8 fish is a huge amount in a ten gallon! I feel I should also warn you that mollies grow too large for a ten gallon and really do need a 20 gal. :)

I'm sorry about your fishy losses. Can we see photos? :)

Gotta love petshops, hey? They are rarely well informed and too concerned with making a sale to point out where a choice isn't amazing. :(

That is a fantastic picture!
