  1. Betta and Two Mollies?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    So I have an older male betta fish in his own separate tank currently, but I'm hoping to move him into my community tank that has two male mollies and a plato in it. The mollies seem like they're not aggressive even though they're both males, but they do chase each other often though there's no...
  2. 15 to 20 gallon stocking help - already chose the fish, just need the numbers!

    Other Fish
    Hi! My friend wants to get a fish tank. He's kept fish before, but he's not sure how many to put in a 15 or 20 gallon tank - preferably 15, but if that's impossible, a 20 would be okay. Dimensions would be helpful too, but not necessary! I'm willing to research more. This is what he's...
  3. 10gallon tankmates?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    So I've been considering getting a 10gallon for my female betta when she's big enough, but I don't want her to be alone! I'm having difficulty deciding if she should be in a sorority of just bettas or if I should get her some other fishes to cohabitate with. Been considering corey cats (2 min)...
  4. So So Happy!

    Betta Chat
    Today I made 5 purchases (my mom also almost came home with a beagle :roll:) I got 2 platys, 2 mollies and a moss ball from petsmart! Oh I hope Mojo likes them. I'm so happy. I chopped off a little bit of the moss ball and gave it to Humphrey in his 1 gallon bowl so he has something soft to...
  5. We hope to see you again... Lon'Qu, Noctis, and Emmeryn...

    Betta Memorials
    Hi everyone... Three of our bettas have past away this week, also an upside-down catfish has passed away as well... We don't know what was wrong with Lon'Qu... I was so worried about him, I was at a friend's house when he passed... Makes me really sad... I was also away when Noctis passed, but...
  6. Molly babies!

    Other Fish
    O_O Oh, my God, our two balloon mollies might be giving birth, we know one is for sure. We just separated them into a breeding container so they can have the rest. We have the babies into our 5.5/6 gallon that the mommies were in. Any advice? We do have powdered fry food. I'll post some pictures...
  7. I guess I simply couldn't resist... (New Baby Betta!)

    Betta Pictures
    Hello all. Yesterday we went shopping at the petstore again and ended up buying 4 fish and a new tank set up. We bought two balloon mollies to accompany one we already had, a albino plecostomus, and yes, a new baby betta. He/She is named Acelin/Acelynn. (Depending on the gender. Even though I...
  8. Doing Some Research For 10 Gallon Tanks...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hi everyone! I just had some questions about maybe starting up a ten gallon tank and getting some fish to put with our bettas. One of our local pet-stores is having a closing sale and we're for sure planning to get some five gallon aquariums for our bettas that are currently in one gallon...

  10. Mollies fighting?

    Betta Fish Care
    So, I recently bought 4 mollies, one jumped out of the tank after the second day (unknown reason) now the last 3 mollies are still alive and healthy but today I was looking at them and my favorite who I believe is a female, who's all white is a nice girl (or boy) and when I was down stairs a few...
  11. Newborn molly fish! Please help!

    Other Fish
    I was expecting my Mollies to not give birth for a few more weeks. This is my first time having any babies. I have 2 right now (all I can find) in a breeder. I have my ten gallon and just got home from the pet shop when I saw them swimming around. I managed to save 2 and they seem to be...
  12. First time molly breeder. Need help identifying possible pregnant molly.

    Other Fish
    A few days ago I brought home a few Mollies, 2 of which were girls. One of the females was slightly larger, but was still normal looking compared to her previous tank mates. That one is a gold molly and I am kinda excited if she is pregnant. I'm not sure if I have identified the gravid spot...
  13. Are mollies brackish water fish? Are bristlenose plecos okay and is my tank alright?

    Other Fish
    I heard that mollies are brackish water fish and that bristlenose plecos are not good tank mates for them. Is this true? Or can I just leave it the aquarium the way it i, if it is safe? Right now it's freshwater 20 gallon and I add some aquarium salt (just the told amount for the tank size...
  14. First time molly breeder? Any suggestions?

    Other Fish
    Since my last goldies died I wanted to take a break from em'. Right now my little bristlenose pleco is in the heated 20 gallon tank all by himself. I thought it would be cool to get some mollies. I heard they breed pretty fast and am excited. Today I bought my healthy 1 male and 2 females and...
  15. 20 gallon tank...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I currently have a 20g tank set up with 6 danios, a lyre tail molly (who hides all the time), and an albino bristlenose pleco. Do you think my CT would be able to coexist with the fish already in there? If not I will just keep him in his current tank, but I thought he might like the extra room. =)
  16. Newbie!

    Betta Fish Care
    Hi everyone!! I am very new here, so please bear with me and guide me in the correct direction if I make a mistake. :) So, ever since I was little I have had a betta fish. They were always kept in bowls and died after a few weeks. Since I was little, I thought it was normal. The "circle of...
