I thought that was my fish for a minute !!! looks just like her . .. she gave birth last month, im guessing the dad was a dalmation cos i now have 13 koi pattern mollies.

Yours looks like a couple more days, her stomach will square off and then usually the next day i find they give birth.

Good luck

stevenjohn21 is there any chance you could post a picture of your molly's babies? I'm pretty sure the dad of these babies will be from a dalmation also and was just curious what yours look like.

Took me a few tries to keep some alive...

I would Suggest that you make sure you have floating plants in there for them to hide in... i had 5 of mine in a breeder net and found another one after 3 days and he was way bigger than the rest so i let them all out and they are doing well.

They seem to me to grow better when they can free swim.

And if you sneek in after a few hours of dark you can see them swimming about while the big fish sleep

Congrats! and good luck

Yah same here... I think it is because they swim against the current and build muscle and grow... At least in my tank
