Uh Oh. 2 pregnant female mollys

I think 2 of my 3 female mollys are pregnant. Their bellies just seem to be swelling. A lot. And in just the past few days. How long is the gestation period for this breed? (i.e. when can I expect to see babies?)

what kind of mollies?

How often are you feeding them and how much?


Reason im asking, when I had mollies they did this, they wern't pregnant.

a few of em died eventually, had one that got about 3" long and about 1" girth, he got sent to a bigger tank. I was overfeeding and they ate most of the food anyways.

If they are really big you should stick them in a breeder box/net the gestation is like 30 days (my dad can tell it to the day, he used to breed them).
