Black molly preggers

I was just watching my tank as I do most every night looking to make sure my fish counts are still normal. I just noticed that one of my black mollies is plumper than usual, my thoughts immediately went to pregnant molly. I have my 29 gallon set up with 8 neons it. If I do have babies will the neons eat them? Will they be safe if I put all the other mollies in there without the neons? So many questions so little time........

20 Gallon Planted Guppy tank. Amazon Sword, Dwarf Hairgrass, Cardinalis.
55 Gallon -1 BN Pleco, 1 High Fin Syndontis, 1 Oto, ~18 Kenyi Cichlids

Hi,
Almost all fish will eat baby fry, even the mother will eat their young. I use to take the fry out of the tank & put them in their own 10 gallon tank I already had set up. (Most fish have the majority of their fry in the evening.) However, 20 tanks later, I just leave the baby fry in the same tank with all of the other fish - As long as there are enough hiding places for the babies, some will always survive.

Good luck with your new young! :
