When I first got her I only had one male. He was very old though. She is my newest addition and I only added her like 2 weeks ago. I'm thinking she may have been pregnant when I bought her? Any estimate on fry? And what about my platies? I'm sorry I just love my fishys.

It is fine I like the fact that you love your fish, and you can admit to it hehe. I let my boyfriend talk to people about my tanks lol, I feel like a fish hoarder. But as far as I can tell, your molly may be pregnant, but may take a bit before she is ready. And I agree that if you bought her from a tank with males, she is bound to be prego. It's just a matter of time now. As for your platies, I believe they may be pregnant. Just not sure how far along they are. I love orange platies, they are so vibrant!

I love them too!! I'm so scared my fry will get eaten! :'( I would hate myself! Lol. My fishys and my brother are my favorite things in the world!! Lol! My brother lives with me part of the time and he wants to add more fish to my tank? Do you think that's okay or no? He is bound and determined he's going to get some fish. He can't just wait for the fry!!! Ugh 8 year olds....

I know what you mean. I used to live with my brother from time to time, but his chores got to me and I didn't feel like being a maid. hahaha (He is 23) As for new fish, not sure if you should add anymore. How big is your tank? And how long has it been running for?

It's not big at all. It's only 10 gal. My brother is 8, I'm 18. He kills me... He tells me all the time how I'm getting puffier ( cause I'm 6 months pregnant) and how he thinks it's cause I'm too addicted to my fish and it's unhealthy and causing me to swell... He's a mess...

I understand!! He's more like my kid than my brother, lol. It's kind of weird I guess bit that's just how we had to grow up and now that I'm 18, I went to court against my parents and got primary custody of him so yeah! I have A LOT going on... Wish I could just go to college like a normal person. But yeah it's just him, me, and my fishys.

Wow, you sound like a strong little lady. I send you my best wishes over sea! Must be hard, I couldn't imagine taking care of my little brother. Seems like overwhelming responsibility. At least you can unwind and chill with your fish though
