The LYRETAIL BALLOON MOLLY is a hybrid variation of the Sailfin Molly, Poecilia latipinna. The Balloon Molly has an arched back & rounded large belly. These Mollies have a large lyre-shaped caudal fin and a gorgeous dorsal fin. Mollies have the ability to adapt to a variety of salt levels in the aquarium. With a gradual acclimation, these fish may be maintained in either a freshwater aquarium or a saltwater aquarium. In the freshwater aquarium, a teaspoon of an aquarium or marine salt per gallon is recommended for optimum health.
The LYRETAIL BALLOON MOLLY is well suited for any community tank because of its peaceful nature and is compatible with other peaceful, large fish that can be in similar water conditions.
