Balloon Belly Molly
Colorful & Fun - But Not For Long
I've been an active aquarist for many years, and all of the Mollies I've had have been fun to watch, but none lasted for more than 6 months. They are active, friendly and curious fish, however they seem to be less resistant to partial water changes, chemistry fluctuations or occasional tank contamination than other more durable species.
Although they're rated for beginners, and they are usually inexpensive, I would consider them more of an intermediate fish. They stay small, which is great for smaller 5 or 10 gallon tanks, but you need to keep a close check on the water quality each day to make sure they stay healthy.

Great fish for beginner
I have had two balloon mollies in my ten gal tank along with three platies for a couple of weeks. I LOVE THEM!!! They are so cute and active. So much fun to watch, they are all over the place.
Should I get a bigger tank (:)) it will have more Mollies.

This is a funny, cute, amazing fish. I love the way it kind of look like its sticking its tongue out. It is great for beginners. Watching these fish so entertaining. If you like fish I highly recommend this one.

I bought one of these guys yesterday and they are so cute. I like mine because she swims all over my tank.
