Sporting black coloured scales, the common black molly is a typically peaceful fish that does well in a community aquarium if it’s offered enough space and a planted aquarium. If kept in a community aquarium, you should choose size-appropriate tank mates that share the same personality traits as the black molly. Black mollies are omnivorous (you can feed them algae-based flakes, brine shrimp, freeze-dried bloodworms, etc.), they have a strong appetite, but be careful not to overfeed them. All mollies enjoy live plants in their aquarium and the black molly is no exception as it likes to graze on plants and algae that grows on plants.
