Another Molly Question...She can't keep the boys off 'er!
You have probably read my other thread about my baby being pregant. Well, now I have another question. I'm cleaning some of the decorations from the tank. I decided to take a look at her. She looks normal, pregnant, and pretty happy. Shes just picking the alge off of the heater. As I was sitting there, I noticed one of he male sibblings would no leave her alone. He kept sniffing her anal fin, then bumping up against the side of her. I'm guessing he was mating, but shes already pregnant! I sat there for 15 minutes, and he did not leave her alone. At one point, the full grown male came up and did the same thing, but only once. She was.......having a bowel movement at the moment is that makes a difference.
What is up? Should I move her to the breeding net? I would like to keep all the babies that are born.
In the picture below, you can see her in the upper left corner
, and the male that is bothering her the most in the lower left.
Thank you in advanced,
