...we had guppies and (don't tell bex!) mollies and swordtails so they'd procreate and feed the angelfish.....made the angelfish more vibrant colorwise.....lived longer, too.......

SAM! LOL!

My bro tried to talk me into getting some predators for my tank .... I just couldn't do it.
So my bro took some of my mollies and put them in one of his big tank with big fish. LOL, one of those mollies was a rouge and started fin nipping his big bad 100 dollar fish, ha ha ha.
He was not happy!

....i always liked mollies, and we always had hydrilla floating in the tanks just so some of the mollies would survive. we also had the floating "maternity ward" we would use occasionally to keep a batch of babies to go into the community tank. i won't tell you about the sailfin mollies we used to seine out of the creek to use for fish bait.....but we had some of these in the house, too......

LOL Sam ..... I know.

My mollies had a ton of babies, probably I was up to about 200 at one time. It was actually quite funny and I had to open up another large tank to accommodate.
I've got the over breeding kinda under control now.

All I did was change the type of water they had. It was a brackish tank and they thrive in that type water. I took it to fresh and it's slowed them down.

Yeah .... I'm a buzz kill.
