Mollies generally get along with most other tropical fish, and aren't prone to territorial aggression. There is the propensity for new molly owners to overfeed them, however, and they may steal food from other members of the tank. Feed black mollies only what they can eat in three minutes. If they are breeding, you should include live or frozen foods as a part of their diet. Bloodworms, brine shrimp and blackworms are all excellent choices.

Mollies are tropical fish and that means you need a heater. Some people try to not use a heater but they're fish usually end up getting sick over the long haul because they NEED those temperatures. Some quick advice: Pet stores over price aquarium heaters. Buying online is a much better option. This is top rated with over a hundred 5 star reviews.The Molly fish is a livebearing tropical fish that can be fairly easy to breed. For many aquarists the biggest problem is not getting them to breed but stopping them from breeding. If left in a tank with other adult fish, the baby mollies will get eaten.The Molly is a tropical fish that prefers a little salt in their water. A teaspoon of aquarium salt per 5 gallons of water will go a long way in helping them. You may also see them in saltwater tanks from time to time. There is a local reef store here that keeps black molly fish in a regular saltwater tank with similar sized species. The molly is a very attractive tropical fish that comes in many different colors such as orange, green and black. Some of the more popular varieties include the sailfin, balloon and the dalmation.The Molly is a tropical fish that prefers a little salt in their water.

Another problem with mollies is that theyare more herbivorous than carnivorous, and evolutionhas primed them for grazing rather than gorging. Compared with standardtropical fish like tetras and barbs, mollies have very distinctive jawsfeaturing a unique set of hinges that allow for extreme protrusion ofthe premaxilla (the front part of the upper jaw). Both jaws areequipped with a single row of sharp teeth, and by pressing the mouthagainst solid objects and then extending and withdrawing the jaws,mollies can very efficiently scrape away diatoms, filamentous algae,and various other microorganisms. Algae are difficult to digest, butmollies have a long digestive tract that gives time for the digestiveenzymes to do their work. So although what they prefer to eat is poorin protein and difficult to digest, there is at least plenty of it, andthey can feed more or less continuously during the daylight hoursnibbling away at algae and decaying plant matter.Another video of my 18 gallon (80 litre) tropical fish tank, 1 year after set up. 1 Swordtail, 3 Guppies, 2 Mollies, 2 Platies, 2 Harlequins, 3 Lemon Tetras and 2 Catfish.
