Ok,

I moved my black molly into my 2 gal with some live and plastic plants for
Hiding places in case im not there for the birth.
I had to improvise, since i only have
2 tanks. My guppies that were
In the 2 gal are now in the 15gal. I may keep them in there permantly
If there dpin well when she has the fry.

Hi!
Your molly momma looks an odd shape of pregnancy to me. Usually they grow the bellies forward, and then square out. But your momma looks like she went down, to me that says she could be full of eggs.

I would let her back into the larger tank, and add the plants in a corner in that tank. You may want to invest in a breeders trap or net, $10 at most and definitely worth it if you cant buy a whole nother tank

Im going to keep her in there. Im going to get a breeding net though.
How do they work? Right

Below the filter.

She may just be resting, sine females hide by the heater before birth. And a breeders net is basically a plastic frame and fine mesh around it. The mommas go in when they are birthing and the fry hide in plants you pit into the net.

I dont know much about daino breeding, but the other fry will usually grow depending on feeding and care, they can get to an inch in 2 months of fed right.
