^looks a lot like our Mr Molly. He's so full of surprises. I'd say it depends on the availability of the fish. If it's some super uncommon fish that you gotta order online, I doubt some lady who cares not about fish would have one. Other than that, totally possible. Guess we have to wait.

Good thing you didn't buy a Molly friend xD
I guess you should start researching that species. Maybe you'd get more clues.. Or post him on tropical fish keeping.

I KNOW! And I agree!!! His slimness and big eyes and loooong boy parts have been bothering me. He LOOKS like a Molly. . . but noooooooot exactly. Hard to tell if he was undernourished, but the slim build of these fish really look like what you've got. They aren't uncommon here in stores, though not nearly as common as mollies and guppies. . . I've seen them called 'leopardfish,' too

What a mystery this little boy is!!!

It's sorta neat. I have a love-hate relationship with this fishy's story so far. :) I love that he is a mystery but I hate that you had to get him that way. I am all weirded out now. My mollies have big eyes and are longer....

Haha! At this point I suspect most Mollies are mutts. I don't know! I'm new at this. I just know that MY mollies are shorter and fatter with smaller big eyes and the male is not so well endowed. *shrug* We NEED an expert on this thread!!!

Whatever he is, how's he doing?!

O.o

That DOES look just like him!!! It says they're extremely rare. . . If they are, what would she be doing with one of those!!!?

I'm dying for an update!!! How's 'Mr.Molly' doing? Fattening up any? Got any new pictures to share? Hope all is well!
