The babies look nice n healthy. Hopefully all survive till adults. Are you going to sell them to lfs or going to keep them till adult? Hopefully the babies are a cool mix of colors.

Did I read correctly in the original post that it took your Molly 3 months and several days before you finally saw fry?

Im having confusion with my pregnant Mollys as well.
Created a thread here:
http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...on-263925.html

The basics are that I have 2 Mollys that have been pregnant for at least 5 weeks. Yesterday I found 1 fry in the tank, but both Mollys still look very pregnant and neither have showed the typical signs of being close to giving birth (ie loss of appetite or hiding in a corner/near the heater).
Thoughts?

Sorry to butt in on this thread... it just seemed similar to my situation.

Some times mollies will give birth to fry in little bundles over a period of weeks. So you way find more fry soon. But that your fish haven't shown any sings is also quite confusing.
