overview
The Gold Doubloon Molly is perfect for hobbyists who love the marbled coloration of the Harlequin Sailfin Molly, but without all the dorsal flair. This variety of the short-finned Poecilia latipinna Molly has an interesting color scheme of black and gold that accentuates its playful and energetic behavior. The colorful and lively Gold Doubloon Molly makes a peaceful addition to most aquariums.

The Gold Doubloon Molly prefers hard, alkaline water conditions and may not thrive in aquariums with acidic or soft water. The Gold Doubloon Molly has the ability to adapt to a variety of salt levels in the aquarium. Through gradual acclimation, the Gold Doubloon Molly may be maintained in either a freshwater or saltwater aquarium. In the freshwater aquarium, a minimum of a teaspoon of aquarium salt per gallon is recommended for optimum health.

The Gold Doubloon Molly requires an aquarium of at least 30 gallons with algae and plenty of room to swim. The Gold Doubloon Molly should only share an aquarium with other peaceful fish that prefer hard water with elevated salt levels.

The male Gold Doubloon Molly is more slender and has a gonopodium. In contrast, the female Gold Doubloon Molly is more rounded in shape and develops a pregnancy spot. The Gold Doubloon Molly is a livebearer that requires a spawning box in a 25 gallon, or larger breeding tank. The aquarium should be planted densely as possible or have a thick algae mat. Having a group of floating plants in the corner of your aquarium will promote rearing outside of the breeding tank. Every 60-70 days the female will give birth to 10-60 young that are already approximately one-half inch long.

The Gold Doubloon Molly is an omnivore that requires both meaty foods as well as algae. Provide the Gold Doubloon Molly an algae-based flake food, as well as freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and brine shrimp.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1-1/4" to 2-1/2"
