meadeam Posted September 18, 2022 Share Posted September 18, 2022 I am very annoyed with my black mollies and kind of wish I hadn't put them in a community tank. They aren't attacking anyone that I am aware of, but they just have such odd behavior. My tetras and rasboras school nicely mid-water, the cories do their thing on the bottom, the pleco hides in her log. But the mollies... they're always darting and diving into the plants, crashing into things and each other. Whenever someone gets near the tank it's sheer panic. This batch were born in my tanks, so although they've been moved lately, they have always been in the same house. I'm hoping they settle down eventually. I have 10 total, and I think I have too many males; they appear to be roughly equal to females in numbers. I don't want them to reproduce, but I loathe trying to move them again as they will be nearly impossible to catch in my heavily planted tank. I just regret putting them in there. Mollies haven't done well in my water, and I wouldn't have them anymore if they weren't so prolific. I think my pH is too low. I've raised it to around neutral with crushed coral. They annoy me, but I'm trying to care for them properly. I might need a reliable fry eater though so I don't have them in perpetuity. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
