Any luck yet? My girlfriend's momma balloon molly has had two batches of fry since we've had her and is working on another, yet we haven't seen her popping them out yet...seems to always happen overnight...go to bed, no babies, wake up and bam! Little fish everywhere. It's fun though. If yours is anything like ours she will get absolutely HUGE before she pops. Squared off is definitely the right term for it...ours ends up looking like a box with fins every time haha.

Ah, sadly, no. She died, but apparently, it happens so I'm not gonna worry about it.

I'm a spaz...

Ah, that's too bad. We had two guppies die trying to give birth before we got one that started churning them out. Good luck, hope it doesn't discourage you too much and you try again.

Not one bit. I have some babies right now, only about 2 weeks old, and they're black molly girls so I'll try with them and the guppies, though, I'm pretty sure a couple of these girls are pregnant.

oh her not eating that usually means she is about 1-2 hours away from giving birth, wait a second, in the net was she going up and down, if she was that was probably her just starting to give birth, put her back in as soon as possible.

When my guppy was pregnant I also had fry dreams and then finally 6 days ago she gave birth, I had to wait a long time though!!

sorry for my previous post, i thought the thread was still on the 1st page, so then I answered to that post, anyway disregard last post.lol

Anyway, im very sorry for your loss, it happens to the best of us... I recommend getting guppies, they r very calm and they always give me the cutest fry i ever did see, and there very easy to see if pregnant and determine when their going to drop.

Oh my, I'm sorry for your loss.....and I apologize for my late post, been away from the forum^^;
Anywho, 2 weeks is too young for a livebearer to be preggo. I know with Platys and Guppies its around 4 months of age that they reach sexual maturity, so I'd say at the very least that for the mollies
