I knew getting mollies and platy fish I was going to end up with babies. But when is she ready? I had her in a breeding cage last night but I did not want to keep her in there too long. I want to put her in there when she is really ready to pop!

here is the best photo I could grab. of cause not easy to take photos of moving fish!

Hmm... she is defanitly pregnant, from what I know I think they have a black spot on their underside when they're going to give birth soon. But I haven't had any of my Molly's give birth YET so I'm not sure

I think the red platy on the bottom of that photo is also going to have babies too, but not as soon as my Dalmatian molly is.

Yep, she does look pregnant. That dalmatian looks like she will have alot of fry.

No problem :D, if you ever need help with any of your fish PM me =3, also floating plants are perfect for the fry but be aware that sometimes the adult fish can stick their mouths in the floating plants. But your tank seems to have alot of decorations so I wouldn't worry that much.
