Sadly enough no the male just hides in the cave or in my mixture of L. Repen and moneywort so the female can't get him. It's sad but funny

they get the biggest in the last couple weeks. You know its really hard to tell. I had a small creamcycle molly that had 13 babies (that survived-so who knows how many she actually had, plus I didnt have them in a breeder tank or anything) she was a small fish with a large belly, but didnt look like enough room for 13 +babies....

Then ive had other fish that have only like 5 or 6.... theres really no way to tell.

PLUS, remember that the due date is only aproxamate.. I know there are some of use whos fish have babies every 28 days or whatever, but there are also MANY people on here who are wondering WHEN there fish will ever drop her fry... Right now I have a VERY pregnant balloon molly that has got to be "overdue" and im just waiting.... she hasnt showed any signs of birth coming.... but she does look like shes squaring off....

Same as with any other fish. Gravid spot, enlarging belly. My creamcycle balloon, I could see the eggs in her, shes so light back there, and now shes just growing and growing, and starting to square off, the other one, this batch of babies must be dark in color shes has quite a dark gravid spot. I dont know if I coudl tell if anyones balloons were pregnant, unless they were well into pregnancy, but mine was easy, I watched them grow and change...

I'll be watching this thread. Any plans for the fry? Are you going to throw them in a spare tank or what? Pictures compliment threads you know

when the eggs hatch inside them they get skinnier,then they get bigger as the fry grow.
