Hello all!
 
I am slowly but surely gaining some experience as a fish enthusiast. Is that what you'd call it? Hahaha!
 
Anyways, a month ago, my beautiful Gold Dust Molly gave birth to 14 lil fries. This is what momma Buzz looks like:

As the fry have gotten bigger, they have developed beautiful spots! Almost like a Dalmatian Molly mixed with a Gold Dust. Check it out:

So I am very curious as to what type of Molly the dad was! Is this common with molly fry? They all have the spots and it's so pretty!
 
Is this rare? Or is it just a cross with a Dalmatian and my Gold Dust? Thanks!

Oh wow! Those are cute! Probably just a Dalmatian dad. Very cute little guys though.

No idea what the dad was, since I don't know much about Molly's but these fry are extremely cute with those dalmation spots! :)

Yeah, I bred dalmatians with gold dust a while back and my fry looked just like that. They may loose some black.  Mine turned out very pretty.  :) Good luck with them!
