Ive attempted breeding in the past but never had any success at it. I bought some mollies a few months back and they have flourished in my planted catfish tank. I came home from work to find about 30 to 40 babies swimming around. I got as many as I could into a breeder net. This is actually the second batch of fry, the first I just left in the tank and I have three left who have just gotten big enough that im not worried they will be eaten. The guy at my lfs is willing to do cash or store credit for the fry when they grown some and im wanting to start seriously breeding. These are 3 dalmation mollies and one balloon mollie, 3 females and one male. The guy at my lfs said the male wouldn't breed with my balloon mollie, any truth to that?
I am going to setup up a fry tank. This is the setup Im thinking about from what ive read is:
-10 gallon tank
-1 or 2 sponge filters
-possibly plant such as java moss
Ive read conflicting things about substrate so I prob wont fool with it. Also what would be the best way to cycle this tank? And any other advice is greatly appreciated.
