Preganant Balloon Molly?

I have one single female Balloon Molly which I moved to a seperatre tank when I found the others had Anchor worms.

I dont believe that is a male.. Male live bearers have a long penis. (Dont know correct term)
Anyways are you planning on saving the fry? Then you need to provide hiding places for mommy will eat them.
Look for the gravid spot which should be a dark dot in the belly of your molly. It will move closer to her anal canal where the babies will shoot out, when its close the babies will be coming out soon.

I suggest you keep the female by herself as other fish will stress her out. Do this before she starts to give birth because if stressed she will abort the pregnancy. (Happened to me once) Also I dont believe in those breeding traps. They stress the fish out more.

Thats definatly a female she has a triangular anal fin, also I don't think she's preg at all as if she was there would be a black spot above her analfin which would get darker until she gave birth.
