Is there any way to tell if they are pregnant? There were definatly males in with her at the store.

correct me if i am wrong, but thats not a pregnant fish... balloon mollys in general have arch backs with large round belly...

also, i think thats a male... but again, i may be wrong.

It's definitely a female.

I always find it so difficult to tell with baloon mollies whether they are pregnant or not so I can't help there, sorry. They are so round anyway that a pregnancy isn't very noticeable.

Look out for a gravid spot. Depending on the colout of the fish this may be easy to spot, and it may not be.

Since there were males in the tank with her, there is a good chance that she is pregnant. Time will tell.
