If you have the room in your tank you may want to consider getting a couple more females. That would reduce the harassment from the male on the one female. Of course then you will be having more babies. But the gouramis would help with population control.

I hope she has her babies now that you moved the male!! I'm trying that with my molly's right now. I just moved my male to the breeder tank and I'm hoping that she will give birth now that he's not mating with her and harassing constantly!! I don't have a ton of room in my tank, it's a 29 gal, and I want to keep some of the fry, so I'm adopting out my male balloon molly to a good home. That way when the molly's are done giving birth, over the next several months, I wont have to worry about anymore babies! Post pics as soon as she has them!!!
Take care!

Yep, I'm pretty fully stocked but I could probably squeeze one more in.

BABIES!!
I came home from spring break and there are 7 babies in there! They're so cute! <3
I put mama back in the big tank, along with a new female. She's still huge as ever, but I guess that's just guppies for you.
I have no idea how many she ate but I'm glad I have 7 very healthy and perfectly formed babies!

Thanks! I tried taking photos, but they don't show up! Too tiny. I'll put up pictures when they're bigger.
How's the molly?
