The Gold Dust Molly is an excellent alternative for those that like the Black Molly but would prefer having a bit more colour in their aquarium. It’s a short-finned variety with an interesting colour scheme of dusty gold and black. Males of this variety are slenderer, females are fuller and develop a pregnancy spot. A planted aquarium is ideal for this fish that enjoys a diet that should include algae-based flakes, brine shrimp, and freeze-dried bloodworms.
