questions about dalmation mollies
 
i just got y fish today, i got 2 african dwarf frogs, 5 ghost shrimp, 3 otocinctus, 3 red mickey mouse platy's, 2 dalmation mollies, and 5 guppies. I have a 75 gal. tank, and i tested the water and i even took some in to get tested.

my question is my 2 dalmation mollies are staying together but there staying at top by the heater? they do swim around the tank but they go right back to the heater. how do you tell if i have a female and shes about to give birth, (i googled why is my dalmation mollystaying by the heater and it told me they do that when they are about to give birth.

any help would be great:-?

It might be they are pregnant but my male mollies did it during the first week. This is very rare but it might be both male and female. You can tell if its a female if its anal fin is a rounded triangle.

wow! i think they are a male and female bc i ended up on a site that had pics of a female and male. the male has a pointed fin in the back, as a female has the fan tail. so i guess they might have babies, oh no u want some lol j/k

I have 2 dalmation mollies. They swim together and sleep together. Lately the male has been nipping at the female all the time. He always go under her and nip at her underside and charge her. She also looks fatter than usual. What is going on

They are probably mating and she is pregnant.^
