Looking at those pictures, especially the bottom one, her belly is all square/flat on the bottom instead of round which is exactly how my molly looked RIGHT before she gave birth, so she is probably pregnant and close to giving birth. But not seeing her beforehand it would be hard to tell. That is a beautiful fish by the way!!!

lol that last angle really shows proof that some angles aren't too flattering.

Honey, does this angle make me look fat?

Well, its 10 PM here and she's showing no signs of labor. I'll wait until the morning. I do have about 6 plants and a few other decorations, so I think they can hide.

Again, thanks everyone for the help!!! If I do have a few extras, I would be more than willing to share a few. I hate to ship them though....a little inhumane...

If you're local, consider it a done deal!

Still no sign of labor...

But the male is STILL inseminating her every second of the day. Something weird shes doing though. Shes hanging out around the heater and eating stuff off of it. Also, every once in a while, she'll rub her side up against a hard object. Like she scratching.

What up?

thats odd. my male lost interest in alice when she was heavily pregnant and now that she has had her babies hes interested again. if shes hanging about the heater it could be that shes a bit restless if shes close to birth. it seems to be one extreme or the other when theyre ready to give birth - either they swim up and down like mad or they hang about one area and keep quite still

AHHHH Its soo frusturating! I wish there was a constant sign that would identify labor had begun. She's still eaiting, so I figured I might have a while....But yeah, the male is still doin his thing and its buggin' the hell out of the shela.

???

Okay, so I'm going to the pet store with my mom today. I'm buying three mollies. I want a female dalmation, a female black, and a male dalmation. I'm looking for them to breed. I've never done this before, and just got my tank set up yesterday. If they do reproduce, are plastic plants going to be a good enough hiding place for the fry, or will the male just bulldoze through them and eat them? If I can find a floating plant, or just let a plastic plant set on the top of the water on it's side, will the fry be safe? Please help. I'm a little nervous.

Thanks,
Emphasy
