- - pregnant mollies!! (http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/livebearers/pregnant-mollies-100298/)
three of my mollies are pregnant and have been for quite some time. i posted on april 5th about them being preg and they already looked pretty big, they still haven't given birth and aren't showing any signs of doing it very soon! (ie, still eating and not hiding) what's the longest time they can be pregnant and can they prevent themselves from having them if there stressed?? (which i don't think they are i do regular water changes, have plenty of plants and keep temp right) just don't no why i don't have babies yet! :cry: please help! I've attached some pictures, thankyou
they all look close, but in the lighter colored ones I can't see any eye spots, or darker areas near the anal fins. This shows at the end of development and is a good indicator of near birth. Be patient, you look like you will be overrun with fry soon!
I have kept mollies in the past....it seems like it takes forever! LOL Just keep an eye on them, right before they have them they literally look like they are going to pop and the belly gets really square. The black multicolor one looks close but the orange and the white one have a little bit to go.GOOD LUCK!!!!! :-D
haha, i no i will be that's why i'm not separating them...just going to let nature take it's coarse, i just thought they would only be pregnant for 4-5 weeks so i'm a bit confused because it's been a lot longer. Also my male dalmatian molly seems to be bullying the preg females. He chases them, bangs in to them, nips them and puffs up his top fin. How can i stop him? i don't want them to get hurt (or the babies!!)
