COVER T 0512

About the Cover

Mollies have been a staple in the hobby since its origins. When given the right conditions—including hard fresh, brackish, or marine water and plenty of space—they have been proven to be hardy charges that will readily breed in an aquarium. Coming in vibrant colors, such as sunburst and 24-carat gold, and having fantastic finnage (such as the sail-fin molly gracing our cover), mollies are now available in a great number of varieties to suit anyone’s taste. Livebearer expert Bill Allen reviews the multitude of fancy mollies in the hobby today (p. 66). Photograph by MP. & C. Piednoir

Tip of the Month:

That most fish like bananas? Seeds and fruits make up a good portion of the diet of many popular aquarium fishes, but even fish that would never see a banana in their native habitat will probably enjoy eating one. Try a small portion of mashed banana, and see if your fish don't go ape over it!
