    I would like to know what species of Molly I can put together in a 75 gallon tank. I know I can put Lyretails and Shortfins but, I would like to know (before I buy the tank) what species I can put in. Like the Sailfins, and the Balloon Belly Mollies. Can I put Sailfins, Lyretails, and Shortfins in the same 75 gallon tank? If so, how many?? (I have gotten a lot of different opionions) And what about Balloon Bellies? Do I need a different tank for them?

    They are all compatible, it really just depends on if you are trying to keep the strains pure.

    No. I don't need pures. I want hybrids and mixes :) Are you sure the BB Mollies can stay with the rest? I had someone tell me it is not good for them to breed with Short Fins and the rest

    They are all the same species just variants, I see no reason why you can't mix them.
