Smile How long does a Molly get pregnant and do they give birth to fish or lay an egg?

Hello fish keepers... I'm a new fish tank owner and had gotten me a 55 gallon tank with it I have a dalmatian molly (pair), and two other pairs of molly. My Dalmatian, and 2 other females are pregnant, when should i expect them to lay their eggs or have their baby fishes for that matter?

Please help..

Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

The answers to your questions will be found in our profile of the Common Molly, which is a livebearer. You can click on the shaded name to see the profile. Profiles in general are under the second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
