I purchased 3 Mollies and put them in the quarantine tank. After 2 days there were fry, so I removed the adults and fed the fry up until they were twice as big and able to swim fast. Then I put them in the community tank with everybody else (all non-aggressive) fish. They are growing well. My question is: The original 3 Mollies were Marble, but they came from a tank that had various colored Mollies in it. The fry are still "white/non-colored". When will they change color to whatever the parents looked like??*W

mollies usually keep their colors that they were born with. Mollies are one of the few livebearers that do this, but the males may develop metallic blue or black edging to the fins as they get older...

Update on these Mollies: They are about 1 inch long now and pure white/silver with some black spots developing on their bodies. One of them has a lot more than the others. Is there a color called dalmation? That's what they remind me of.

Here's a photo of the young Mollies:



Can someone tell me when Mollies start to breed?

P.s. You can also see my Leopard catfish under the driftwood in the picture.
