It’s a molly deffo I have a rare one he is Black with blue shiny speckles

he is kinda the alpha male in the pack followed by an orange sail fin and a black lyretail the rest are females of different variations hoping I’ll get some interesting fry eventually :)

However Im not breeding to sell and haven’t got them in breeder boxes or anything

all natural process and selection through hiding spots
Omg my molly is an alpha too!! my tank has been officially cycled and im so excited add more friends for my fish!!!

Meet meaty he is my black/blue speckled molly

Mexico my orange sail fin , Shamu my Dalmatian , Preggers the brown white and black spotty one at the top(named so because she was pregnant when I bought her and has been poppin fry ever since)
Strawberry the red sail fin molly , Fred my Dwarf Gourami and Monster my Albino Chinese algae eater(he is a little monster likes to try and intimidate the others when they come close this only started recently and he is for sale now)

Not featured is my calm and collected dwarf chain loach named ugly(he is awesome but sure ain’t pretty) oh and the whalers(3 guppy fry a couple month old I bought 5 as an experiment to see how they got on unfortunatly the 2 smallest got eaten😞 but 3 survived and are thriving)

And 1 molly fry(couple weeks old) I believe she is a female and she is doing great)

There a tight nit little group sometimes the males like to try and change the order a bit and get a bit angry and the females enjoy there food a little bit too much but there all mostly chill and get along fine

Wow Meaty looks really similar to my Wally!(the one that i posted) Do you think Wally is a sailfin as well?

Mexico, Shamu and Preggers are so adorable! Strawberry is such a good name! I wanted a red molly as well😄

How many gallons is your tank? It looks like you have a cool group of fish!

if I remember Meaty was sold to me as just a rare molly I liked his colours so I bought him he has got quite a large dorsal fin and does display it like a sail fin would but I’m not sure if he is a sail fin or not
