The average gestation period (pregnancy) for mollies is 28-31 days, however one of yours looks boxy therefore she can be due any day, you can tell when they will give birth as the abdominal area will become swollen and square-like. Good luck hope this helped

Also just a fact; live bearers can hold their fry for multiple months and will not give birth to them until they are adamant that it is right for them.

The bottom one. The top one looks like a male with its pointy fin. Females have a fan-like fin.

Nice If you have some java moss or a floating plant, you could place it in your breeder box and your babies can hide in it so mama doesn't feel tempted to eat them. I had a guppy give birth and with no plants to hide the babies. Woke up to a "Full" post-pregnant mama guppy. She ate her fry so I put her back in the tank and waited another month. xD

I like it! Lots of swimming/exercise room Looks good!
Hopefully she feels comfortable enough now. Sometimes live bearers will hold the fry till they feel they can thrive. Keep her well fed (monitor her eating so you don't over feed) and you should have babies in no time.
