Balloon Molly lifespans

Recommended Posts


I am trying to find out how long balloon mollies live for. I have done some research via google and the websites differ from 1 year to 5 years.

I have a tank with livebearers and the balloon mollies seem to be dying off (about 2 a week) and all the others (platy, swordtail) are doing fine.

Any help provided would be greatly appreciated.

the swordtails are probably killing them

balloon mollies are actually often as long lived as other mollie variants/hybrids

if you give them a tank to themselves

good water quality with added salt

AND a quality veggie flake

Any livebearer living over a year

is basically not something that happens often in the wild
