Just this Tuesday I got 2 mollies male and female(who had the new babies). I put them in my 29 with 2 mollies that are females and one pregnant. There is 5 cherry barbs that are super active. The tank is completely cycled. When I added the fish and the liked the tank, they accepted the tank right away. I feed them a verity of fish flake and brine shrimp food. Tank is planted but not heavy planted. There is a lot of java moss for them to hide in. But anyways, I have counted and there is about 7-15 babies that I have seen. I will upload pictures but the type of molly they are is a Gold Dust Molly Lyretail. Awesome...

Thanks. I had the tank with just the silver molly and only one of the fry made it. There is a bunch of java moss where the fry can hide now but just in case I might just buy a 10 gallon to put the fry in. I counted about 14 so far. the tank still need a bit of work, it is a little messy from a week ago when I added the mollies. I am going to do a 10 percent water change today. I am way overstocked with all the fry. Haha, and its going to get way overstocked when the silver molly gives birth. I am surprised that they already have the gold and black color.
The tank I have is a 29 and the fry hardly ever go near the filter. I actually made this breading trap out of an old container that is see through and they are all in it with a filter to filter the water inside the container, witch is inside the tank. And to take care of the ammonia in the little container I put a bunch of java moss in there. And the filter also has some sponge in it so that the fry dong get sucked in.
