My mom has a female molly that we thought was pregnant (she's HUGE, but definitely not sick so obvi=preg, right? Apparently not.) but it's been like 2 months and nothing's happened. My mom got a mesh breeding tank and put the molly in, and says that in like a day there was a crazy amount of poop in the breeder basket and the molly looked significantly skinnier. She eventually removed the mesh breeder tank, and the molly swelled up again.
Is she faking pregnancy to get the two male mollies to leave her alone, or is she like too scared to poop or something?? They chase her all the time (but they also chase each other all the time, so?)
I'd move her to her own tank if we had one, but we don't and we don't really have the money to buy another tank+stand+fliter etc. Plus, then she'd be without any other mollies, and they need company.
Is there another option, besides giving her away?
FYI: When we bought the mollies they were small and we thought they were all males!! I would never have done this on purpose!
I only have potato pics, so this just what she looks like, not an actual pic of her:
