An aquarium hobby classic, the Molly is a livebearing species found through parts of Central America but it has been bred worldwide for the aquarium hobby for decades. In that time, the wild form has been developed in to dozens of varieties and color forms, including ‘Dalmatian’, Black, Gold, and others and wild varieties are rarely available. Relatively peaceful, Mollies are hardy, and active fish but may bully smaller or more slow moving tankmates. They are often recommended for beginners due to their ease of care. A livebearing species, they will readily breed in the aquarium.
