They get really really fat and look almost square. When it's getting close, her gravid spot will turn black. With my guppy, when it was getting close to time, I took her out of the guppy tank and put her in a small fry tank to have them.

My problem is my molly is black so it's really hard to tell when her spot is black lol. I've placed her into the nursery regardless just in case. I figured that is the best thing for her?
