6 weeks, yea it took her a while. balloon mollies will generally give birth to another set of mollies a month later

she will dwell at the bottom of the tank a lot more. some balloon mollies like to hide away from the other balloons, but put her in the breeder first if she doesnt give birth then put her back in the tank

No, we brought her from the LFS today on her own but we already have some mollies anyway.
