Is it possible to get a random baby fish from the fish store from their plant tank?

Not until around an inch or 2. It is a live bearer I know that much. I am almost positive its a molly bit only time will tell

Crazy if so. Mollies are only 3 days in tank. Means I bought a prego Molly.

It happens to everyone who buys a molly almost. If you get 2 more being a male and female you will always see little swimmers at the bottom

Here's the deal with livebearers. Even after they are away from males they can still hold the sperm for 3 or 4 more times.

Thank you for all the advice now I have to take my longtailed zebra danio to the store because he is sick. Staying at the very top of the tank not moving much not eating and a red spot on his back.
