I usually raise my guppy fry and offer them on my Facebook for 1-2 $ depending on how pretty they are I get like 5 people jumping for first dibs XD they like my crosses


I'm actually looking around for black diamond paltys <3 I got 3 at Wal-Mart for my ex's mom and I loved them

5 giant goldfish, 23 bettas, a dozen guppies, 20 bronze/albino corys and a random assortment of a few other community fish/ invertebrates.
1 adorable little frog, 5 cats, 3 dogs and a wonderful toddler aged daughter

Family fur-balls and fins <3

from what i can tell about these molly babies is that they likely aren't from two orange lyretails. they had dalmatian mollies in the same tank at the store and many (over half) of the babies are spotted already, though i have no idea if that will clear up or not.

as of yet, it doesn't look like any have gotten the lyretail, though that might come with age. i don't really know anyone around me though, i moved here in febuary and i don't get out much.

I know how that goes, maybe look up local small pet shops near you and call around to see if they want them ask for 25-50 each

the only local owned petstore near me is... sketchy... at best... they have a 7 foot long crocodile in a small bedroom sized room (with windows so you can look in) inside the shop as well as advertising selling baby crocs.... they are advertised as a reptile store but they also sell kittens, ferrets, and puppies as well as a small selection of fish and bettas... and apparently many puppies who are sold there get sick with parvo (likely because their puppy cages aren't designed for puppies in mind and it's impossible to fully bleach and clean the virus out... but they need to stop selling puppies instead of insisting the puppies aren't sick)

i might trust their fish and reptiles but honestly im not sure i want to support them in general :/ which is why i go to petsmart...

okay some good news! my coworker said she had a tank open! she was talking about getting some goldfish for her kids to learn how to take care of an animal, and when i found out she only had a 10 gallon.... i sorta had to intervene a little bit. i mean it's bigger then some goldfish bowl but yeah.

She came by today and picked up the two adults and (pretty sure) all the babies. mollies will be much happier in a 10 gallon then goldfish would be (especially as im pretty sure she was going to grab some from the feeder bin and... oh boy)
