Yes that is sometimes the cases. But she doesn't look like a balloon Molly to me

Sorry for posting back to back


The lyretail balloon molly looks like this
Attachment 105628
A side picture would be more helpful that way we can tell if she is square or not

It's definitely preggo, even if it was a balloon shape, it would be a round body not a flat bottom!

Its always hard to tell when they will drop especially a black Molly because you can't see the gravid spot. she does look pregnant to me maybe even a little square, IMO I'd say in under a week.

First one I don't believe so, the second one is questionable. With balloon Mollies you can notice the pregnancy more in the chest area. their chest will seem to puff out more

I didn't put mine in a net. I think that it's too stressful for them & it may cause them to loose the fry): so depending on what other fish you have & if they have enough hiding spots.
