We have 14 Balloon Molly fry (the Mom is black and the Dad is white) and we're just curious how long we'll have to wait to see the colors and markings on them. They were born 9/14. Thanks!

I don't know about mollies but it took almost 2 months for my swordtail fry to start developing true colors.

Nuts! I was hoping for 2 weeks, lol.

We had platy fry a while back and they got to about 1.5 months and we never saw any sort of distinctive coloration or makings on them.
