If you have a male, then it's almost guarrenteed the female is pregnant. Mollies are kind of like guppies that way. Depending on her coloration, you may be able to see the "gravid spot" on the lower rear of her belly. If you can see dark dots, those are fry eyes, and she's giving birth soon.

What steps are you planning to ensure the survival of the fry?

On a light colored fish, it should be easy to see. She'll be a bit darker there.

I'm not finding a picture of a molly with a gravid spot, but scroll down on this page for a look at a guppy gravid spot.

This pic? http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewto...218&highlight=

The gravid spot isn't dark on her, but you can see the secondary bulge to the rear of her tummy. Certianly pregnant.
