then it will not be a problem because guppies and molly are livebearer. just let nature does its course and will eventually get fries.

The best thing about breeding Mollies is how easy it is. Just put them together and let them do their thing with almost no effort.

Yes I started out breeding Mollies, then move on to breeding egg laying fish starting with Zebra Danios, and am now in the challenging process of breeding Neon Tetras. I'm curious to see if I can succeed.
