Hello all! Im new to all this!

they take up to 28 days to drop their fry, you can take a look at this photo for a reference to a pregnant mollly:

if i had to make a guess, mainly from the second photo, i would say yes, she is pregnant.
also, i hear that the Gourami's do tend to harass the more peaceful fish when kept together, ive had it happen to me as well, its annoying.

hope this helped!

Yay! I hope it is! I let it out the net last night because I felt cruel so I'm hoping when she drops I'll be here to save all the fry!! I'm sooooo excited!!!!

with 3 males and a gourami harassing the female, am I wrong in thinking that she probably wont live long enough to have the fry?

Sorry to sound pessimestic but I'm not certain myself and just wanted to clarify.
