Gold panda molly

The Gold panda molly is a molly found in the aquarium trade. The molly is thought to have been a hybrid of the Gold Dust Molly and possibly the black molly. It most likely does not live in the wild. The sailfin molly (Poecilia latipinna) is included in the cross, and some breeders[who?] have considered the Latin name of the gold panda molly to be Poecilia latipinna.

History[edit]

A man who bred a hybrid called the gold dust molly and others is said[by whom?] to have decided to breed a new type. This type was made by combining the gold dust molly and another species. It is likely that the dalmatian or black molly were involved in the mix, and created the gold panda molly.

In aquariums[edit]

The gold panda molly does well with other mollies, corydoras, guppies, Neon tetras, and Zebra danios. It prefers water with a pH level of 6-8 and will eat flakes and pellets. It is a very peaceful fish.

Molly (fish)

Poecilia is a genus of fishes in the family Poeciliidae of the order Cyprinodontiformes.[1] They are native to fresh, brackish and salt water in the Americas, and some species in the genus are euryhaline. They are often seen as live-bearing aquarium fish. All species in Poecilia are called mollies except for the Endler's livebearer (P. wingei) and the well-known guppy (P. reticulata). Without a modifying adjective, molly usually refers to the species Poecilia sphenops.

It has been proposed that the genus Micropoecilia should be included as a sub-genus of Poecilia.[2]

Aquaria[edit]

Along with their platy cousins, the mollies are part of a pivotal aquaculture group of livebearers, which can live in water from fresh to fully marine, and a wide range of other conditions. They feed on smaller insects, animals, and vegetation.

IUCN list two of the species, the sulphur molly, P. sulphuraria, and the broadspotted molly, P. latipunctata, as Critically Endangered.

The generic name Poecilia derives from the Greek ποικίλος (variegated), in reference to the fishes' coloration. Mollies need to live in water that is 25 to 28 °C (77 to 82 °F).

Mollies come in several different colors and spot patterns, such as black, white, black and white spots, orange, orange and white spots.

Mollies have been kept successfully in freshwater, brackish, and saltwater conditions, although the last is not recommended for the novice aquarist.

Species[edit]

There are currently 40 recognized species in this genus: [3][4]
