Black Molly   

 

 
A generally hardy fish, best given plenty of room to avoid stunting the growth of their sailfin and to give females plenty of space from males, provide plenty of green foods for best results.
Originally from rivers of Venezuela, Columbia and Mexico.
It is always advisable to keep 2-3 females per male to dissipate any pestering.
Ideally slightly alkaline water conditions are provided between 7.0pH - 8.5pH. Temperatures should range between 22-28°C. male growth 8cm female growth 12 cm 
Molly should be fed a variety of flake, frozen, freeze dried and live foods for a varied diet.  Being omnivores they will happily accept a wide range of foods, although for best results green foods should be offered in abundance.
A generally peaceful fish, however it should be kept mostly with fish that can tolerate its more alkaline requirements.  
These fish like all livebearers will readily breed in captivity, it is more a matter of when not how it will happen if you have a mix of males and females.
