Mollies and Goldfish
« on: May 25, 2010, 05:44:32 PM »

Will mollies and a small common goldfish get along? I am just wondering. Huh

I would really advise against mixing goldfish with other fish, except maybe with koi in an outdoor pond.  Goldfish typically like temperatures that are colder than most fish are comfortable with.  I'm not 100% sure, but I believe goldies also have different nutritional needs.

I have also been lead to believe that Mollies like brackish water (mix of salt and fresh). They can survive in fresh but have the best life in brackish. While goldfish cannot survive in brackish water.

We've successfully kept mollies and fantails together for YEAAAARS! The goldfish grow, and the mollies breed d: So I think that practically there's not a big problem keeping them together, but theoretically, they have different needs of water quality, but both goldfish and mollies are quite hardy fish.

At home we've been feeding them with goldfish pellets, and some tropical fish flakes + freeze dried live foods once in a while, no problems! (: The water's kept on 26 degrees Celsius, and both kinds thrive. I saw the molly female give birth last time I changed the water for them d:

So as long as the tank is big enough, there shouldn't be a problem (: Think something a bit bigger than 20 gallons and you should be ready to go! Cheesy
