Molly - Poecilia sphenops

Origin: Central America
Temperament: Peaceful
Care: Feed with vegetable-based flakes and algae. Don't clean algae off back glass as Mollies need the algae for survival. Many plants and some salt in the water will do the fish good.
Temperature Range: 18-28C
pH: 7.5-8.2
Potential Size: 10cm
Breeding: Mollies are livebearers. Although they are harder to breed than Swordtails and Guppies their breeding is still prolific. Babies will feed on zuccini cut into cubes. Some salt in the water will help with breeding, increase growth rates, and add more colour
Sex: Sex can be determined by the male's modified anal fin (gonopodium)
