My so called pregnet molly

I thought my dalmation Molly was pregnet because she was really fat but couple days later she got skinny again and I had her in a breeding cage thing so I know she didn't have baby's and it keeps happening and so I stopped feeding her for 2 days an she got fat again during those 2 days....... WHAT IS HAPPENING... Please help

She could either be bloated or she ate all her babies. IME, the first drop is usually sort of small, so it is possible that she ate them all. What are you feeding her?

Dried blood worms cause can cause bloat. I lost a molly who over-ate blood worms and a second one barely pulled through. You should feed a high quality flake food and only use dried blood worms as a treat. The bottle suggests only giving it 1 or 2 times a week.
