Probably? Most female livebearers are already pregnant when you buy them. They can also store sperm for a few months, so they will keep having babies until they use it all up. What kind of setup/stock do you have?

Yeah you'll have more mollies eventually lol, now is the time to figure out if you're ok with them having babies a lot or not. If not you'll only want males

If you don't have an extra tank, you can try a breeding net. It's like a small mesh box that you suction onto the wall, you can make it quite homey with some plants, and it'll stress them out less.

I had a Penn-Plax net like that. It was very good for the fry when I was trying to keep them alive.
