You can first tell when the babies (fry) are about two-three months.
Apart from the anal fin, female Molly's are generally rounder and males more thin/long. You can really see that difference in mine. Another way to tell is colour. Say if you had two orange Molly's: One male- one female. The male would be brighter coloured by a bit.

So pretty much like guppies. Lol I was just wonder bc I only have one female n she was ready to pop when I got her. She had 73 but I'm down to 63 now n they are starting to get color but still small.

Can a moon tale Molly have babies that aren't or that are a solid color? Ik guppies can give you different babies as mine proved that to me.

Cool, I can't you believe you had 73! How did you count that!? Not sure on the last Molly question but I'll look it up...

Lol that's all I can think of Ty.


I have 2 55g one for males n one for females. I had her n a breeder. After she had then I took the babies out 1 by1 into my 30g baby tank. It took awhile to catch n count them I marked on paper where I was at or I would have forgot when I was trying to catch them
