Question How pregnant?

Hi,

How pregnant would you say my Molly is? Just a rough figure. I know the gestation is 3-4 weeks but I'm unsure how far she really is?

There is no way to accurately predict such a thing unless you are doing controlled breeding. Age of the fish, size of the fish, how many times she has mated, water chemistry, temp, genetics, stress... all play a part in when she will deliver and how many fry in each spawn.
