why is there fry in my tank???

so i look in my tank to see a tiny baby fish swimming around. and i'm wondering how in got there. did my dolmation molly give birth? all else i got is the one molly, a dwarf puffer, one oto, and a cory.

um well cories should be kept in bigger groups.
did you just get your molly recently?

If you got the molly recently, she was probably pregnant when you got her.

i got the molly like a week or two ago. and i know about corys but it was given to me. i might buy more after i get more otos. does anyone know how to make alittle divider so the other fish don't get him? i dont want to spend the mony to save one fish that cost like $4 full grown.

um a tupperwear container floating in your tank should be good, just drop an airstone in it.

for feeding them i think they take finely ground flakes just make sure you change the water regularly.

sounds like she was pregnant when you got her and finely crushed flake food is what we give our fry....
