Normally you want to try not to stress them and the babies so you want to put them in as close to the birthing date or put them in a new tank temperarely. Same with the babies. You got to figure 30 fry will need grow out room eventually. You will also need to stop adding fish as 6 gallons is not enough for all those mollie babies and barley for the fish you have. If you upgraded to a 10g it would be perfect for your stock you have now and maybe another for the babies. They can be found REALLY cheap on craiglist.org and you are already out of room.

lol, then i would say you have a problem. I would find someone that could home them for you, take them off your hands, or has a bigger fish that needs a snack. They are 2 small to give to a pet store.
