mollies don't lay eggs... they have live fry.

I know that's why I'm worried, she is still square and her vent is open but all that comes out is eggs not fry

And yes I'm positive it's a molly

Edit: she usually gives birth to a few dozen fry at a time and a stillborn once and a few eggs every once in awhile but always some fry

Sounds like the fish equivalent of miscarriage.

Was it possible she wasn't fertilized or did the fry just not grow?
