the ghost shrimp in there might have ate it (well it did in my perspective).... ghost shrimp are known to eat livebearer fry

Oh I took him/her out of the one gallon with the ghost shrimp a couple days ago. Right now I've got him/her in a spare betta cup with a lid floating at the top of my aquarium I feel really bad for him/her, but I've got a breeder box coming in the mail and it should be here tomorrow

Also, I've seen my male molly flaring and chasing and staying close to the female. I'm pretty sure they're breeding... If she does get pregnant, do I just keep her fry in the breeding box and take care of them from the box?...
I've never seen them do this before, but I bet the little fry is theirs.

The orange one is a male and the dalmatian is a female. How many mollies do you have?

Okay I got her by accident actually. When I went to Petsmart I just said I wanted a dalmatian and I didn't even think about male or female... What can happen if you only keep a male and female? Plus there's 3 male guppies in there...

If you only have one female and one male, the male might stress out the female from chasing her so much. If there's more females it gives them all a break every once in a while

The male can harrass the female to death literally. Id get 2 more males and for the guppies id say you would be safe with 6 females added
