i thought about getting a few more females.but when i seen this male i was like gotta have him :)

im also in a dilemma.i could start a sorority if im able to figure out what to do with my mollies...ive been reading and told different things about their tank sizes..i read minimum is 10 gallon then 20 gallon and even 30 gallons as a minimum.i have 8..7 male and 1 pregnant female..i have my 20 gallon hex that is fully cycled now and has 4 minnows in it.thought of putting my mollies in there.people seem to be against that..yet read online i can have about 8 mollies in my 20 gallon...so now im not sure.want to clear out my 2nd 10 to divide for my male bettas.what a lot of confusion ;)

yes i agree with u..and to have her breed with my new male.i can only image how the colors would be.ill upload some pics of him once he gets use to me and allows me to take a couple pix.he is in a temp half gallon bowl until i finish making tank dividers and decide what to do with these mollies..

i know its hard to decide at times.the other 1 i was choosing between was just a darker color.pretty much the same colors.just different shades.if i had the space and money i would have got them both...the sad part about it all was as i was looking through the bettas.i fount 2 dead ones :( poor guys.didnt have a chance.i gave it to 1 of the workers.then put the other dead one in a workers cart.

these bettas are addictive.ill go bankrupt soon haha

both my females are VY and 1 male is VT the new male is double tail.i read somewhere when breeding them.to make sure to have like 1 double tail mail and would be fine with a VT female.the double tail would dominate and i would have double tail fry..bot sure if i read that correctly.i already forgot...

now the problem also comes down to naming them.im not 1 to name pets.but have just recently to make it easier to talk about them on here.

thats a good idea..though mine is multi color,white,red,blue, light green or turquoise.

id keep the 55 as a growout tank no matter what..1 they arent cheap to come by.2 u know the condition its in..if i had the room here.id have atleast a 50 gallon myself.i didnt even have room for my new 10...i some how managed to get it in here.i may have room for a 2 gallon underneath my other 10 gallon next to my 2..but thats about it.im surprised my dad hasnt said anything about it.but he enjoys the fish as well ;) IMO keep the 55 no matter what.

they have that going on at petco here.40 bucks even for a 40 gallon.i was like wow.wish i was working and had the space.i thought about arranging my bed in a way i could use a tank stand as a back since i have a futon mattress.but my dad keeps saying tanks that size r too big.......

oh u mean the top bracket thing that goes all the way around it?it will hold.as long as its siliconed well..the rim piece is more of a show type thing..i dont think it has much function other than that.ive seen 100 gallon tanks that didnt have a rim.only other support it had was a piece of glass in the middle that keeps it from bowing..how thick is ur glass for the 55?

u can buy silicon cheap at a hardware store..i did.i patched up a big crack at the bottom of my hex and then re did the silicon on the corners.holding water and fish and everything.no leaks whats so ever.

but tell him to get you a 75 n buy some 2"x4"x10's and make your own stand for it. or spend the **** ton of money buying one lol im bout to make my 55 a stand n try find a place for it o.0
