Is my molly pregnant?
I just bought 2 fish from the store. 2 female mollies (one of which was pregnant) and 1 male. Also 1 female platy. In the beginning, my male wouldn't leave the unpregnant female molly alone! Now, he doesn't bother her at all. Also, he chased my female platy. He is now totally uninterested. Neither one looks bloated, but I thought I would ask. Also, my pregnant molly is rather large. When will she have her fry? Sorry so many questions, I have never owned mollies before, pregnant or otherwise.
