Pregnant molly?

Hello everyone! Im a new member
My molly has been fat for so long now. I thought she was pregnant but she hasnít given birth in more than a month and a half! (Maybe even 2 months) but look at her, she looks sooo pregnant! What do you guys think??

Looks like you have her in a breeder box. She's probably stressed a bit. If livebearers dont like the environment they can just reabsorb the fry and just not give birth.

Woah, I did not know this!! Thank you!
Yes I put her in a box so all fish in the tank, including her, wouldn’t eat her babies.. do you have any recommendations?

If you have lots of hiding spots for the fry you can keep her in the main tank. It's what I do with my livebearers. Stuff like aquatic mosses and floating plants work.
