    First post here but have had fish in tanks and in koi ponds for 25 years. Was more in to fish breeding in the past. After 5 years I have 3 tanks up and running again. 2 60cm Tanks and 1 6 feet tank. And one koi pond. I do have sworttails a sailfin baloon mollie and balloon mollies normal mollies and a sailfin mollie in tanks stil waiting for the other tank to settel down. And have all ready 16 littel balloon mollies now as well. I'm more in to plante tanks this time but the sworttails are littel basterts with the plants lol. Going to put some of the sworttails and balloon mollies in the one tank and the sailfin mollie and normal mollies and swortails in the other tank. Don't have Co2 in the tanks so plants is going to grow slow for now. Will look at Co2 later. Stil have to make my mind up about angels again can get breeding fish but will have to see what they look like befor i get them.

    Very very nice @Swerwer

    Live-bearers always make for a nice display of colors in a community tank

    It is a lyretail mollie got the big tail and sailfin. The femail with it is all so a lyretail but the femails don't have the big sailfins. The femail in the photo is a young fish. I have a black lyretail femail as wel.
