1 thing after another, sail fin mollie fry maybe
 
Maybe? For a few week the male and female have been....well playing and now I think she might be carrying.

Back near the anis and where you can see the translucent belly you can see this dark red internal bulge.

So if I'm right what should I do?

I'm thinking first she neededs to be moved out of the big tank and alone. Keep a eye on her and after birth move the mother back to the big tank and nurse the fry.

If i dont have a working 2nd tank what can be used and would I have to keep the temp, air, gravel and so on with the fry? How long do I wait till they can be moved into the large tank?

A small plastic tub with a heater and sponge filter could work. :wink:
