What is this???!

I purchased a Molly the other day and was warned she was pregnant. A few days later I find this. Curious as to what it is. Eggs maybe?

Not from a Molly. Mollies are live bearers. The babies are born fully formed and ready to swim. What else is in your tank? Could be an egg cluster from something else.

I have a pair of danios, a pair of tiger barbs, a platinum barb, a rainbow shark, and a pair of plattys, note the danios and the platties are different colors.

A tiny piece of food can make a big thing of mold.

Try to take it out of syphon it out. You can also take 3ml of hydrogen peroxide 3% for every 1 gallon of tank water and slowly squirt the mold. Turn off your filters before doing this and leave them off for 20 minutes. That will usually kill it off.
