Looks like she is carrying fry, yes. I just have mollys and I love them. Mine seem to give birth every two weeks or so, not all the fry survive. I'd be in trouble if they did! But the ones I have were born in Nov and Jan, they are so cute too. Their distinctive feature - the belly - is obvious in the fry too, and they take about 5 months to get their colors. If you see the mother hovering around the heater then birth is impending. Also, I feed them premium food and I think it keeps them strong and fertile. Plus, if there is a male in the tank they will always be pregnant. Not too long ago, I bought one and it had fry the next morning! Mine seem to give in the evening hours. I would check up on them around 10 or 11 pm and would see little fry hiding in pebbles. It's exciting.
