Okay so this is my first post and its about my new member of the family.
I used to be a big fish keepin guy but that was 20 years ago and I am married with kids and can olny have a 5 gallon aquarium. I have too much other hobby stuff and work and family things to do to get a bigger tank.
Ok, so here is the deal. I have purchased a pair of what the Petco guy calls Butterfly Mollies, however I have done some research and found that they don't exist so I am settling with "Lyretail Balloon Mollies".
Now the female is HUGE! I mean she is pretty darn close to bursting.
She has been chasing everyone around the tank but focusing mostly on the other Lyretail Balloon Molly, and I read somewhere that means she may be close to birthing the babies.
Now like I said I only have a 5 gallon tank, but I bought one of those small floating nurseries that has the "V" that you can insert.
Should I put her in it now or wait?
Here is a pic of her. I tried to resize it but its too difficult. She is at the top of the pic and to the right. Just look for the fatter fish.
Any help would be appreciated. My kids really want babies.
