Here is a wonderful lively group of Silver Lyre Tail Mollies shown in an aquarium in our facility.
     

Scientific Name: Poecilia latipinna, Poecilia sphenops, hybrids of these two species, and perhaps other species of Mollys.
 


Comments
Lyre Tail Mollies have a spike at the top and  bottom of its tail fin. People with lots of imagination think the  outline of these tails has the shape of a lyre, which is a musical  instrument invented a long time ago. Mollies are livebearers like Guppies, Swordtails, and Platies.  Livebearers are easy to breed. Click here for more about  details about breeding Mollies, caring for the babies, and  feeding baby Mollies.

 
 
Pet Fish Talk, an MP3 PodCast, is a weekly internet talk show about keeping pet fish, such as Tropical Fish and goldfish, in aquariums, fish bowls, and ponds. The shows were hosted by the Bailey Brothers, DrTom and Nevin, Click on this image for more information.

We can easily determine the gender of our Mollies, and you can order the number of males and the number of females you want. For example you might order, "One male and two female Black Lyre Tail Mollies, plus one male and two female Gold Lyre Tail Mollies."

Whatever fish you order, we'll always do our best to catch the fish that match the description that you send us. There are some fish like Oscars and Goldfish that we cannot determine the gender, but we can always determine the gender of Mollies and other Livebearers, and we will ship you the gender you prefer.

 
 

Customer Comments

 
I love this site. My question is my daughter got a gold molly today and I think she is pregnant but not for sure. If she is will she get huge? I just want to know if I need to prepare. I have had black mollies in the past and they were always pretty skinny fish.
 
Thanks!
Tracy
 
 
 
Reply. Hello Tracy. I appreciate you compliment about this web site. Thank you. The color of your female molly will make no difference. She is almost surely pregnant and will get big and have lots of babies. So you and your daughter should prepare. Click here to go to another page in this web site with lots of information about how to care for your female and the babies that she will soon release.

Appropriate Home
Mollies need an aquarium with at least 15 gallons of water, an External Power Filter with a BIO-Wheel, 1/4 inch or less of gravel, and an Aquarium Heater adjusted to between 78 and 82 degrees F. Click here for more about warm water aquariums. Like most livebearers Mollies will do better with 1 Tablespoon of Aquarium Salt per 5 gallons of water. Click here for more about Aquarium Salt.
