newbie with a pregnant Molly. help.

I recently got a tank with mollys (4) and a pink tiger Oscar. My dalmation which is a female is pregnant, how do I know when its her time to deliver? She is a sailfin as are 2 of my other mollys, and I have 1 standard. I believe all but 1 sailfin are female.

I plan on getting a slightly smaller tank for the mollys eventually. My Oscar is my main fish. I know they grow big and fast. I got the mollies for my niece who is 9 months old. I don't really expect them to last too long.

My question is about how to tell when my Molly is due. I have no idea when she got pregnant or anything.

I think she still has a couple weeks. I have a pregnant dalmation molly and she is huge compared to yours. I will see if I can get a picture. When they get close to delivery, there stomachs get square-ish.

That's what I read. I've had her for 3 weeks, 4 this Thursday. I already have a net to put her in when she gets close. Using it for time out net for my Oscar right now.(he bit her belly yesterday so I put him in it) he I back in with The main population now and not bullying anymore. I also heard for her babies to survive I needed brackish water, they are in fresh right now.
