Thanks BarbH. I'm over the moon excited about babies fiinally after 4 years in this new house. It's taken a long time.
This Callico Molly is so aggressive I moved the pregnant Swordtail out as well today as Molly has been chasing her too. I have time to move her back later as she gets bigger. And today I'm checking numbers on my 10 gal that has been running empty for over a month now, it used to house a Betta that died, and I just let it run to keep it cycled. The temp is higher so I'm trying to let it come down and I stirred up the gravel a bit to let the filter clean out some of the gunk. My Python would empty it before I could clean it... it's only 10 gallon.
Then I'm going to move the 5 babies out of the breeder box and into the 10 until the new mollies are born. then Mom goes back to the "big" side and I'll let nature take it's course if ever there are any more. Then I'll move Mamma Swordtail over to have hers.
I'm certainly enjoying this!! And keeping a journal of our progress.
