is my mollie pregnant??
I need to know if my mollie is pregnant. She is swimming by the heater and not with the other mollies. She is big and u shape and i put her the breeding net but nothing. My one male was streeing her out so i moved him to my 10gal and he is just fine.i put some pics of my mollie the one that may be pregnant. I am pretty sure she is and its been three weeks since i had her and no babys yet. I just dont know. please aply and take a look at my pics on my profile.

Female mollies, kept with males, are always pregnant. I think they drop their fry around every 4 weeks, so I would expect some fry soon.

when should i move the female mollie to her breeding box?? Her sharp is very close to u sharp and other fish are picking on her, she is now more with the other fish and not hanging by the heater. There is a small black dot on her belly that looks new to me. she is sharping more like a box everyday. one day i was looking at her she puffed and like her belly got big and stay that was cute. i think she will have the babys real soon like in the next week. I hope I have pretty of tanks so i will be find for a

What other fish are in the tank?
If you offer lots of plants for the female and fry to hide in, it may not be necessary to move her.

I've noticed that my mollies will have bowel movements the color of their food. It alsmot looks like play dough coming out. This is true of both my males and females.

yeah she had a bowel movment i guess. i got her a box now if she is ready to give birth. i gave her some baby shrimp and they all loved it. i have 4 other mollie and one guppy in her tank then the one male is in a tank by himself bc he was mating with all the females. I hope time is close. i have been waiting for a while now for babys. wish me luck on having baby
s soon.:-D
