Balloon Molly is giving birth... 99.9% sure! :D
well not really a question, but I wanted to share it with everyone! I saw a fry in my tank, and it looked like a molly fry, but I couldn't find it until about 5 minutes later. I moved it into a breeding box for now. Sooo I noticed my black balloon molly (the only fish I named... her name is rebecca) wasn't coming up to eat. So I looked around for her, and she was eating a little, but didn't come up to eat. Then I noticed the back of her belly looked different, so I thought she was probably the one giving birth. To see, I put her in the breeding box and about 5 minutes later there was a baby at the bottom. I didn't ACTUALLY see her give birth, but I'm pretty sure it was her! :p lol. how else would it get there. So now I have 2 fry from her. She is solid black but her fry are white with black spots... The one she gave birth to in the breeder net had a defect in his/her stomach so I think it's going to die... :(
So she's in the breeder box... I'ma turn the lights off and keep it quiet for her... hopefully she doesn't get too stressed from being in there for a few hours while she gives birth...
