down by the anal area the females have a fan shape to them and males have a tube shape

oh and mollys breed like crazy... females don't even need a male there all the time to have babys as they can store the sperm for a while. you may have your hands full hehe.. I have 1 male and 2 females and they keep me busy with fry. hope this helps and good luck

as stated until fry are bigger than any mouth in that tank. I have a few 5 week old dalmation fry and there still in there own tank as there not bigger than my Angels mouth yet. if you have a spare tank move the baby's in there as they will grow faster than in a breeder box. just make sure you have a sponge filter. if they have to stay in breeder box just might take longer for growth is all.
