Photo could suggest she is pregnant .If se is , she will have the young when she is ready. You do not say what other fish are in the tank.males? I have purchased molly,s that were pregnant and found that they need no assistance in producing young ones. If there are plenty of places for the young to hide , many can suurvive. Looks like you have plantgrowth. That will be where to look for young. :P

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Welcome to the forum maniss, and good luck if your molly does have fry.

The survival rate will all depend on the number of hiding places and what other fish you have in your tank. :)

My molly looked quite plump like what I can see in your 2nd pic before she had her babies. Once she had them I moved them to a 5 gallon where they now reside, only because otherwise my gourami would have eaten them. I'm not sure, the mother molly might try to eat them too.

Fancying the fish world!

I would say just give it time. My molly looked really plump for almost a month before she gave birth. At first I thought she was bloated until she had the fry. However, yours might really be bloated. I can't really say which, it is hard to tell.
