This listing is for one Dalmation Molly, One of the most common freshwater fish in the aquarium hobby today.

The Molly Fish originates from the Amazon River basin in Brazil. It's recognized as an easy-to-care-for, peaceful, live-bearing species. Available in various color variations, as well as fin and tail types, Mollies can occasionally jump, so ensuring sufficient tank coverage is essential. They are highly favored among aquarists of all skill levels, from beginners to experts.

While generally peaceful, Mollies may display aggression when overcrowded or housed with aggressive tank mates. Therefore, it's crucial to provide an adequately sized tank and select suitable companions.

Keeping them in groups of four or more is advisable, as they tend to stick together naturally. It's recommended to have mostly females in the group, as males can exhibit harassing behavior, primarily during breeding. Differentiating between sexes is relatively straightforward, as females possess a fan-shaped anal fin, while males have a pointier one. Additionally, females are typically larger in size, especially when pregnant, as their bellies noticeably swell.

Mollies are omnivorous, consuming commercially prepared flake foods, algae, and frozen options like bloodworms, tubifex, and brine shrimp.

Ideal tank mates for Mollies include Guppies, Platies, Some Tetras, Rasboras, Rainbows, Danios, Gouramis, Bristlenose, Plecos, and Scavenger Catfish.
