Is my Molly ready??

My Molly stopped eating as much as she would (she was greedy) and not swimming around actively. I recently moved her to a tank by herself and water parameters are good. She literally stays still staring in the glass. What do you guys think? Is she ready because she doesn't look boxy(squared off) to me

She is pregnant but not having her babies... I wake everyday thinking I'm gonna see Fry... frustrating much. She is super fat, super greedy and super not having babies

well with live bearers they have a gestation rate of 3 months but they can store the sperm for 3 and you might want to separate her if there are other fish like the male it could be causing her stress.

I went about an hour ago to feed my plecos some cucumber and noticed some small eyes looking at me from under a plant leaf. I'm guessing its a moly fry as i have 3 pregnant Molly's atm they all are acting the same so not sure which one is dropping. I've managed to save the fry from certain death with the fish I have in my tank. I've placed him in a floating hatchery. How long do Molly's give birth for? Just wanna know so I can step away from my tank and stop stalking my fish lol
