Does anyone know of a site that discusses general molly inheritance patterns? I've been looking everywhere and can't find anything except people complaining that they can't find anything either.

i couldn't find anything either but most of my fry look like the parents with a few that are always different. my last batch came from a white lyretail female and white sailfin male and most of them are white with a blue/silver sheen with a few that are dark. i know that with young lyretails their tales will look like normal molly tails for a long time and will eventually start shaping up. hope this might help a little

Hi 2SciCrazed,

Maybe it would help me, if you have a specific question. I have been working on breeding my own color of Sailfin Mollies called Pumpkin Heads. The color is not done being created yet, but the genetics will be very strong. I used a lot of different parents to create the starting fish. After 2 years of breeding, I am about to begin breeding all of the similar colors. I am breeding towards a Neon Orange Head on a black body. I am not an expert, but still might have noticed the answer.

I have heard of an old book and the author, that specialized in Molly gentics.

I just did a Google search for Molly forums. If you can get on one they may be able to help you.
