Pregnant Molly

Hey everybody, I have this Molly in a community 55 currently. Curious how close you guys think she is to popping. I have a 5.5 gal ghost shrimp tank I want to put her in when she's close to give babies a little bit of a greater chance to live. Any ideas?

Thanks!Click image for larger version

Is my molly fish pregnant again ?!

Is my molly fish pregnant again ? She's already had 12 baby fish around a month ago and they've all survived in my tank with the other older fish
Can anyone tell from the pictures if she's pregnant ? And if so how far gone is she ?
Thanks !!

Ballon mollies will always have a bigger belly than normal mollies. But if it is bigger and getting more squared off, than she is definitely pregnant and getting close!

it is likely that she is pregnant again.
their gestation period is around a month, so that sounds about right.
she looks big enough and will give birth within the next 1 day- 2 weeks

hope this helped
