Thanks again for the opinion Haname. Wasnt trying to start a debate or say you were wrong, just was curious because that was the first I heard of that. I find my mollies very active (particularly the male who even tries to mount the balas LOL) But rather easy and hardy. I was never gonna get mollies but I was really struck by the "ugliness" of the dalmations. And I plan to move my 3 into the 10g to see if I can finally get some live births. (mine always get eaten) thanks again for the added info Haname Very Happy

Pure, why not just move the female to the 10g for a little while. She's guaranteed to be pregnant and then you'll be able to get a good spawn and after you can move her back to the 55.

Just thought I'd back haname up on the fact that mollies don't work all that well in a ten gallon. They will grow large if you give them room.

An option for a tank your size would be white cloud mountain minnows. Fun little fish, and if you have live plants and whatnot they may decided to spawn for you.

That is an option I'm considering Huntress. I origninally bought htis tank for quarantine/hospital. I keep it in my kitchen. I have enjoyed having a small tank in there with fish and have found that I who absolutely hate cooking can find it better than tolerable when I can see the fish LOL So I was gonna convert it and get another 10 g to break down all the time to replace it. So I'll consider that. I would like to see a birth. My LFS has already agreed to take what I don't want tokeep. But would like to experience it. And my mollies are rather funny. Thanks again for the input.

Thanks for the lively discussion. I think it is important to get all views. Too many times I have gone to the LFS and someone says "Believe me, this is what you do, I'm a pro.", only to find out that there are way more options available. This forum is a good place.

pure - I just got some dalmation mollies and the lfs guy told me that they should be kept in a min. 30gal he also told me that if you want them to grow you have to give them space, they also look good with fancy guppies but thats another story!

just my .02
