View Full Version : Is my molly fish pregnant or just really fat and happy?
07-30-2012, 04:18 AM
My silver molly has been getting quite round in the past week or so. She has been in a tank with three male cobra guppies and a male marbled molly. They all have been chasing her and nosing at her vent. I separated her with a tank divider in order to reduce some of the stress of being chased constantly. Should I expect fry any time soon or is she just fat? :help: Any advice would be much appreciated!
Goes to 11!

Looks fed but not gravid to me.
Rest assured though that with a male molly in the tank it IS only a matter of when not if she will be pregnant.

It doesn't look like shes pregnant but the males will try to get her pregnant that is why the males are chasing her so you might expect some fry in the next few weeks. :)

Yeah doesn't look pregnant, YET, she's just fat and happy. I had a molly that I always thought was pregnant that looked like yours. Turns out she was just fat. Also turns out she was sterile. She was unable to reproduce for some reason, no matter how much the male mated with her she never produced babies, got fat, or gave birth. That's the kinda molly you want XD I had another that produced over 100 babies in the two months I had her.
