I'm pretty sure both of my female mollys gave birth to like 26 ftry altogether but I'm lost about something. I have a 20 gallons fish tank and its kinda getting crowded. I have one pleco, 3 adult mollys, one pictus catfish, 2 1month old fry (outside in open tank) and obviously the fry. It's kinda getting crowded but thats not the thing I'm worried about. My silver molly its been about 2 weeks since she had her fry and I'm noticing that theres a kinda faded triangular spot on her stomach side area and im not exactly sure if that means shes already pregnant again or if its still from the babies she had 2 weeks ago. Please message me or reply if you got a answer.

livebearing fish can hold sperm up to couple months. so that will develop into fries within 28 days.
