Mollies are a peaceful and popular aquarium favorite. The Sailfin Molly was named due to its distinctive dorsal fin. The Red Dalmatian Sailfin Molly has a unique reddish and white marbled appearance. Best kept with other peaceful fish in a well planted tank with plenty of open swimming area so the sailfin of the male can develop. They prefer a degree of salinity in their water. It is highly recommended that the tank has one teaspoon of aquarium salt per two gallons of water.
