Suki's next in the birthing order. She seems to be the one who gives me the least trouble, has pregnancies faithfully every month and doesn't hold them long... Took a look at her this evening and I've attached pics
The little platy is her buddy... He's fallen in love with her and follows her around constantly. I've never seen her without him in tow... I'm assuming because he's the only male (anything) in the tank and the creamsicle looks the closest to him... Anyway, it's very sweet

She's dramatically larger today and seems kinda squaring to me. She looks like she's got a load of coal in there with all those black spots!

The Platy is one of my originals when I knew nothing about fish keeping and pointed saying, "those look cool, I'll take 2 of those and 3 of those and...."
The Mollies were bred a few months ago by my male who's in QT... the Creamsicle was put in with last month tho and they chased her big ol self around and finally she started holding still briefly for them....

The platy told Santa he wants a girlfriend for Christmas ... We shall name her TRIXIE!!

I've researched it... Some say no because it's square peg, round hole.... But some claim to have bred them themselves...
As for me in a tank of 4 female mollies and 1 male platy, he's never tried to breed with any of them, but he's taken a liking to Suki probably because she looks closest to him and it attracts him... Perhaps the confused little guy doesn't know why! Lol

Suki is a bit more square today... Quieter and hanging out by the heater... Hoping for my little orange specks soon!

How did Suki's birth go?

I am so excited, today I got my first two Mollies! A male and a female.
