Mollies

I have six mollies, three males and three females. One female looks pregnant and the other two already had babies. How do I know when they are going to give birth to the babies? I have angelfish and don't want them all to get eaten again. And how long will it be before they get pregnant again?

They isn't a great way but if they get really square in the stomach they are getting closer. Once mine stopped growing I removed in 3 mins in time! She will hide or swim frantically up and down the tank once she is about to give birth. Every 3-4 weeks they have another batch they do this 3-4 times cuz they store sperm. I would separate they will eat their own young so separate if you want .
