PineSong Posted August 31, 2021 Share Posted August 31, 2021 I have three male creamsicle mollies that I brought home in July. Last week I moved them from QT (where they were with female platies) to my main tank which has white clouds, male guppies, male platies and a male betta. Also, this tank has a Stingray, the 10g just had room light. Since they moved into the new tank, two mollies have been showing dark edges to their tail and dorsal fin, and some darkening scales along their sides. The third fish has remained fully creamsicle. Additionally, they have started a new behavior of chasing each other in tight circles, wrestling, and nosing each other near the gonopodium, or following each other around the tank nosing there. Is this just normal molly behavior when there are no females around? could this and the color changes be related to maturation/hormones or having more light in the tank? Anything I should be worried about? Pic of normal/original creamsicle fish on right, darkening fish on left: Both browning boys: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
