I have this creamsicle molly, pretty good sized fish. I was told it was a male. I've recently found out I was misinformed on several of my fish. I have a male dalmation lyretail that ended up being female as well, and I was told it was a male. lol So I have ended up, I think, with two male fish, a Silver Molly, and a Gold Dust Molly, and four or five females, which is good. I was new with fish when I got them all, so I didn't know having all males could be disasterous should I have less females. So this works out in my favor. However, I had gotten some help figuring things out, but I still an unable to tell.
Anywho, sorry this is a bit long. My Creamsicle molly has gotten....either very pregnant, or obese. I don't over-feed them so if it's just fat, something isn't right. I give them a pinch of food twice a day. Bloodworms once a day and tropical fish flakes twice a day. Very little goes to the snails.
I have a video because getting a photo of the fish is difficult, it moves so fast. It does in the video as well, so I am not sure any of you can help me. I hope you can, I intend to remove the fish if it's a pregnant female once it's about to pop, and it looks like it's about to pop it's so huge! It's been getting bigger and bigger for about two weeks or so now. It's always been big, but now it's just ridiculous. It's bigger now than it was in the video.
One of my gold dust mollies, the one that is long and slender, and much smaller than my rounder larger one, gave birth today. I thought it was a male and the other a female! It barely had a tummy. But because of this, I only saved one of the fry. =( It's normal, yeah, but I like to save as many as possible and be prepared. So if you can see it properly, I know it's hard even with the youtube shake fix, please help me out. ^_^
You will have to go to the actual link, this site doesn't seem able to play it without making it super bright. Maybe it's just me. Sorry for the trouble.
