Poecilia latipinna

  • Care Sheet

The Balloon Molly is so named because they have a shorter, deeper body than normal Mollies.


The Molly is extremely peaceful, and makes an ideal community fish.

The Balloon Molly will accept any aquarium food, but in order to maintain top condition it does require some vegetable matter. They will also eat algae which they will find for themselves by constantly grazing on plants or other surfaces in the aquarium.

Molly’s are livebearers, meaning that the female gives birth to fully formed, free swimming babies!
