Pregnant molly, time to seperate?
2 Attachment(s)
I have a pregnant black molly, and to me she looks like she's squaring off...

But I don't know, because I've never had a pregnant molly before.

So tell me what you think... Is she squaring off?
How long before I put her in the small, false floor floating birthing tank?

Any help would be appreciated!

Wow, she's about ready. You can even see the scales are about all the way stretched. Could be any day now....Be sure the temp is about the same if you move her (a lower temp could spur premature birth, but that may not be a problem at this point).

Nice pics too!

So instead of moving her, I moved the other 2 black mollies to my 45 gallon. You think the fry will be ok with a bunch of tiny neon tetras? There are plants, floating and otherwise, as well as a cave.
