If the white stuff looks fuzzy then she probably has acquired some type of fungus. Look it up on the web and you might could find treatments for it. :-( I'll look also and report back if I find anything. ;)

Well, if she dies, then they obviously die. How pregnant do you mean? How much time left until you think she will release?

well i kno this isn't the time to ask for advice but how do u kno she's pregnant? I can't see my black mollies gravid spot. But I'm sure she's read to pop. A very large Round belly. Either that or it's dropsy.

:D Here is the instructions for a salt treatment:
Add 1 teaspoon of salt for each gallon of your infected fish(es) tank. Add the same amount of salt that night and 2 times again the next day, in the morning and at night. If you don't see any improvement in 3 or 4 days then add 1 more teaspoon every day. On the 9th and 10th days make progressive water changes and look for results.

Hope that helps!!!
