Mollies are strong little creatures. Once I read that mollies had been found several miles offshore. At the time of writing this I have a female dalmatian molly who was born here a little more than a year ago. She is now an adult. Some months ago I had here in a 36 gallon bow front aquarium with keyhole cichlids. And belive it or not she bullied one keyhole. I couldn’t belive it. Then I moved her with four gold barbs, one Odessa barb and a red tail shark to a 40 gallon breeder tank. The Odessa barb chased her all the time.
Now she is in an overstock 55 gallon tank with an almost two year gold severum, two grown-ups silver dollars, two electric blue acaras, a red tail shark, a small geophagus surinamensis, one siamese algae eater, four gold barbs, and one Odessa barb, and they are doing great.
