moved balloon molly male, hopefully babies any day now!

Hello! Just kinda wanted to get some opinions. I have a very pregnant black molly and she's been pregnant for a while now, a couple weeks I think, and she still hasn't given birth. I have a male balloon molly that's been "harassing" her and continuously mating with her and I'm afraid that's why she hasn't given birth. So last night I moved him into my baby tank, which is only a gallon, and I'm not proud of that but it will only be for 1 more day until he's adopted by my friend, and she seems to be acting more like herself. She has been kind of hiding behind the castle in my tank and I was wondering if this is normal behavior or not? She looks like she's about ready to pop though. I have pics of her under "my aquarium" and will try to post some newer pics tonight.
Take care!

Congrats on your babies!!!! No, my black molly is just a regular molly. I think I'm going to let her give birth in the tank and put the babies that I find in the breeder net that I have. The golden yellow fish is a creamcicle lyre tail molly. Do you have pics of your baby platies??? Id love to see them!!
