    it appears to be a sailfin MALE molly if I'm not wrong, haven;t had them for YEARS.

    What's your readings?
    pH
    Ammonia
    Nitrite and Nitrate
    Water Temp
    Adding any REGULAR aquarium salt for freshwater tanks
    water changes? Amounts and frequency?
    Any aeration...and what kind of filtration?

    doesn't matter if they are doing fine, still something can be amiss and their fate could be the same as the orange sailfin.

    agreed! No water parameters... no answer... Many stores do free water tests by the way! If you cant afford a test kit take your water in and get it tested... if not... well any loss is on you!
