Is My Balloon Molly Pregnant?
1 Attachment(s)
bought this balloon molly today and was just wondering if any one could tell me if she is pregnant?

Yes, that is how big mine was when I got her and she is the same size, and has already dropped fry

smellie92 03-12-2012 05:28 PM

cheers, how long was it from when you brought her to when she dropped fry?

dmuddle 03-12-2012 05:29 PM

6 weeks, yea it took her a while. balloon mollies will generally give birth to another set of mollies a month later

smellie92 03-12-2012 05:33 PM

do you think i should put her in my breeding tank? any signs i should watch out for?

dmuddle 03-12-2012 06:57 PM

she will dwell at the bottom of the tank a lot more. some balloon mollies like to hide away from the other balloons, but put her in the breeder first if she doesnt give birth then put her back in the tank

smellie92 03-12-2012 06:59 PM

yeah, i have put her in the breeder for tonight and will see what happens.

okay let me know, do you have any males that you expect to be the father

smellie92 03-12-2012 07:06 PM

No, we brought her from the LFS today on her own but we already have some mollies anyway.
