Hey yall so this is what you get when a black and white dalmation molly male who turned all black for some reason mates with what I was told is a red dalmation molly female. The little guys look funny with half of them golden and the other half black but I can't wait to see what they look like a grown up lol baby and mommy in pictures

Yes, mollies (not all of them...) tend to change color till they're actual adults.

It's got to do with genetics, density of chromatophores in all the three skin layers and the density of them. It's not only with mollies that color change can happen while getting older. It happens to more fish. But with mollies it's pretty obvious that it can happen. Also external reasons can influence the color on a fish's body.

i have two baby mollies that i’m still waiting to see their colors. the parents are the exact same as your parents so maybe they’ll look similar.
