The first two pictures are a yes, the third one is a no. Neon tetras lay eggs and it's not likely that if they do that the eggs will survive. Mollies however give live birth, and the fry have a much greater survival chance.

3-4 weeks until babies if they JUST got pregnant. It's hard to tell though.

Yeah, I'm a beginner with mollies and Istrom only told me once she began to die. There was no hope saving her and Istrom helped me so much, I'm very thankful to her.

If you don't mind me asking, how did you know? I'm not questioning, only curious to why I didn't notice earlier. My last mollies had fanned out tails but I don't know if it matters:/

Good Just let it be known that Mollies are particularly sensitive to diseases lol, so that's probably why Dory didn't make it. But if everyone else looks okay, things should be good

ISTROM! ISTROM ISTROM ISTROM ISTROM!!!!! I FOUND MOLLY BABIES IN MY TANK OH MY GOSH!!!!!


I decided to give the ornaments a wash today (we still haven't bought the plants ) and then I saw two little black lines darting around. For a second I thought they were just debris but then I noticed and I was like MOM MOM MOM WE HAVE BABY MOLLIES!!!!!!!!! I recently bought two females from the pet store and then I guess she had her little ones last night or this morning. I managed to scoop out one with the cup and then the gourami ALMOST ATE THE POOR SECOND ONE! I put them into the breeding net thing and decided that there must be more. We removed the log and just barely caught the last one and I just had to tell you. I was so devastated after the loss of my white molly that I'm just so super excited and grateful that I found these.
