Are molly fish easy to care for?

Yes, molly fish are easy to care for. Molly fish are hardy and low maintenance, which makes them the perfect choice for beginner fishkeepers. Additionally, molly fish are easy-going and passive, so they can cohabit peacefully with other fish in community tanks.

Here are some basic requirements molly fish need to thrive:

  • Around three gallons of water for each molly fish
  • Keep them in a small group of at least four
  • Clean the tank regularly
  • Provide them with a calm environment
  • Feed them an omnivorous diet consisting of high-quality flakes, live foods, and vegetables
  • Avoid housing them with aggressive tank mates
