Mollies for Freshwater Aquariums
Mollies are peaceful livebearers which are well suited to a community aquarium. These fish are prolific breeders, and there will often be babies around in an aquarium populated by mollies. Mollies are available in a variety of colors and body styles including silver, black, dalmatian, cremecicle, and balloon body. The balloon molly is named after the appearance of its body, which is very round while the others are all named for the color of the fish. Mollies are omnivores who will eat nearly any food they are offered, and they are even known to nibble at green hair algae from time to time.
