Hi Miley,

I have heard of a few Livebears that accidently laid eggs. This is considered a miscarriage or an abortion (if I am correct). Is there more stress in the fish tank? Were any new fish added? Did you net the fish when they were due?

All of these can cause fish to spawn before they are ready to give birth.

My Molly dropped 15 eggs followed by 30 fry on her first pregnancy but she was enormous , I thought it was strange but she's had 2 more pregnancies all with 30 fry and no eggs I didn't put her in a breeder box for any of them, I caught the fry as she had them and put them in it for a few days then transferred them to my 25litre nursery tank .. No males now so hopefully no more babies !

Hi Canary,

In Mollies, it can take 1 male 1 time, to have up to 8 sets of fry. She saves some sperm for future fertilizations.

There has been alot about livebearers laying eggs on the forums lately and I would say from my readings, they probably dropped unfertile eggs due to stress

I'm just worried about her now she started to sleep at the bottom but still swims at the top, when do you put them in the laying box, I'd be scared to risk her giving birth with the others because I have to pearl goramis and the male sucked the eggs through the laying box and hasn't forgotten
