The Black Lyretail Molly is another Black Molly, and this one has all black scales and is very dark, like the Black Sailfin Molly but with some white highlights on the fins. This breed is easy to care for and grows to about five inches, so it’s one of the larger Molly available. It’s peaceful fish that rarely gets aggressive toward other fish, and you should house it in aquariums with similar sized fish. The Black Lyretail Molly is very hardy. It’s able to survive a wide range of temperatures and can live comfortably at a pH between 7 and 8.
