While feeding my mom's BPs I noticed the small one was swimming around the new log thing we got it and she wouldn't eat. To my surprise I saw all these little bubble things. She laid probably 100 eggs! It happened a few hours ago
so now I know the sex of the cichlids-assuming that the two have paired up. Unfortunately I know those eggs will never hatch
however my dalmation Molly just gave birth to twenty or so. I returned her to the tank.
Is it normal for their bellies to still be big? My black Molly gave birth a few days ago and she looks ready to pop again! I know they can stay pregnant after birth but she is already really fat again.
After examine the new dalmation fry I noticed A LOT of them weren't even mature. One is still an egg o.O i had a feeling it be a bad pregnancy cause her stomach was awfully square, and I don't mean the good kind. I mean a completely flat belly but still very fat.
There is a problem though. The dalmation who was at dal. Mollie who was attacking the blk. Mollie is now being chased around by her. The black Mollie has been getting aggressive but only towards other mollies. She wants her space, and I think she thinks she owns the tank. I don't understand why she gets along with the swordtail (who is under suspicion of being a hybrid platy/swordtail) perfectly fine and she never bothers the shark.
Can anyone explain this? Is she just having mood swings cause she's still pregnant?
