balloon molly, yellow eggs?
i noticed my balloon molly(Maureen) acting rather strange, so i placed her in a breeder net in the calmest way possible, and she didnt seem stressed at all. i kept a watchful eye on her and she was giving borth to wat looked like perfectly formed, round yellow eggs?? no babies tho? they were like jelly and my goldfish soon sucked them through the net. she was doin this for about half an hour and id say there was about 20 eggs. is this her giving birth prematurely to unformed fry?? or did she abort? i been waiting 2 months for her to give birth but no joy????

they could possibly be unfertilzed babies.

More like stillborn babies to me. Any stress-related factors can cause this.

they were clear yellow, did not resemble babies at all, like the size of a small ball bearing???

I Think That They Were Unfertile.

more likely just a case of the eggs themselves being unfertilized or in some other way defective. such things happen...doesn't mean the female is actually infertile though.
