    Gambusia + dalmatian molly = gammolly? dalbusia? dalmatian mosquito?

    Hi, I had a very interesting thing happen recently. I have an outdoor 275-gallon IBC tote that I keep heated and use it as an aquarium--that is, when it's not being used to quarantine new pond fish. I haven't bought new koi in a while. I have a handful of different freshwater fish breeds in...

    What is this fish?

    I recently bought this fish from Petsmart. The employee said it was a platy and ended up picking a random sku because she didn't know which breed it was. I was thinking it was a very large female guppy but she's a lit bigger than guppies I've raised. (2in. in length) The black spot seems to be...

    About genetics of platy and swordtail

    I am planning to make albino platy by crossing platy and albino swordtail. I know the oncogene xmrk located in X and Y chromosome in platy might cause tumor in hybrid if I am not careful enough. I heard those tumor is melanoma and its progenitor is only macromelanophore. So my question is...

    Surprise globra danio hybrids

    Hi there just thought I'd share these little beauties with all you fishy folk. I had the pair of adults in quarentine and when I moved them to my community tank I noticed some fry in the other tank. Their colour and patterns are still developing but they look better everyday.

My first question is there any chance, even the slightest chance of a platy or mosquitofish hybridizing with a guppy? if so, do you have any pictures? The pond I got these hybrids from only...

    Hybridizing corycats

    So I'm a huge fan of messing with genetics and was wondering if it's possible to breed emerald green corys with panda corys and produce a green, black, and white Cory? Need to know if it's been done, if it's possible, and if so how to do it.

    Former Newbie's African Cichlid Experience

    Brief history of how I got into keeping African: 17 year old me was observing the fish in the dreaded Walmart when I looked into the "Assorted Cichlids" tank and saw a lovely 2 inch white and black fish and a slightly smaller dark blue one. I knew what Africans were and all I had in my 20gal at...

    Hey! So another new tank idea I had was hybrid fish!!! I have bred guppies for about 3 years now, I have tried breeding balloon mollies but can't get fry because the male is so fat he can't breed right.  But I do have a pretty good knowledge of livebearers.  Lots is just from watching my fish...

    Tips On Hybridizing Mollies And Guppies?

    I have a 45 gallon tank, and I was thinking about trying to cross mollies and guppies. I have heard it is possible, and I would  like to try it myself. Does anyone have any advice on, like, how to encourage them to spawn? Anything related would help. Thanks!
