Hi, welcome to the forum. Can't see too well here but the other one seems ok so going to go with pregnant. A side on view could help. Assuming a she

As long as the scales don't look pine-coned or ruffled which may suggest some internal issues.

Hello! Thank you for your reply!!

I think I've managed to attach a side on picture of the little fella...

But Oh dear... He... Or maybe she.... Is pretty pine coned ����
Like all of the scales are kinda puffed out.... But it's swimming around happily and seems active and its appetite seems the same as the other two �� I hope he's not poorly ....

Nevermind :(

Fatso died

Found him upside down under the filter this morning. Last night however... The Japanese fighting fish suddenly sort of turned on him .... Was chasing him all around the tank and flaring up every time he got close so the poor fella must have been exhausted. They've all lived peacefully until now and the JFF wasn't bothered by the other too orange Molly's? Very wierd ... Maybe fatso said something he didn't like?

I can't tell for sure from this picture, but I think that this is a swordtail or Platy, not a Molly.

Think we got dooped at the fish shop lol. Went to another one on Sunday and saw these little bad boys and they were definitely in a tank that said platys lol. Got some Dalmatian mollies though! They're a lot more sucky than the platys like they have longer lips?

Pregnant Molly?

My black mollies are like that. Would be interesting to see them interact in the wild and see what they get up to.

Pregnant Molly?

Hi my family has a 60 gallon aquarium we have some tetras, two mollies, a black one and a small orange one. I always thought they were both females but our black mollys belly had been swollen for quite awhile and i am not sure if its pregnant or what fish could have bred with her if the orange molly is female?? Is my molly pregnant or just gotten fat?? Please help thanks!
