Different livebearers= different gestation lengths?

Hey I'm wondering if anyone knows the average length of a time between livebearers births? I've noticed my platies take about 4 weeks. Guppies haven't given birth yet, and one of my balloon mollies gave birth, but she hasn't looked big though, and it's been over a month. Do mollies take longer than platies to give birth? Can anyone give me an estimated gestation period for the different livebearers? and which take longer than others?

I "read" it was 60 days on mollies... not sure through...I haven't had my mollies but a few weeks.


P.S. what manga is your new avatar from? I know the other was Kyo in fruits basket.

I read that too.... she hasn't been fat enough to have had baby that I just haven't noticed. She has babies January 31st and she was so fat I think I would have noticed if she got that fat again. But yet my last platy had them again 26 days after her last birth. I'm just gonna have to guess mollies take longer than platies.

Also it's Haru Glory (the guy) and Plue (the snow man thing) from Rave Master. I don't rly read manga but I watched the anime. Despite the somewhat negative reviews I read online, I really liked it. It was funny and overall amazing in my opinion. ;P (P.S. The dubbed apparently sucks big time I watched original japanese.)
