Pregnant sailfin Molly

Hi all, my husband has a breeding pair of sailfins but were not sure of the signs of when she will be due to drop. Im a guppy breeder so as they are both live bearing species will there be similarities in pending labour signs? Thanks in advance

I imagine so. Molly's tend to hang near filter or heater. They tend to stop associating with other fish, they can eat a lot less. And their gravid spot gets a lot bigger. Just some things I can think of.

Just a quick update. After close observation for a few days she gave birth in our main tank with no sign of labour. At last count we have 12 baby sailfin mollies. But god knows how many are hiding as we have loads of hiding spaces just incase we don't catch the female in time lol.
