    I've recently gotten a male and female Dalmatian mollies (about a month ago) and I'm certain she is now pregnant! :D I've successfully bred platys before and I was just wondering if there was anything I needed to know that pertains specifically to mollies. Thanks a billion!

    To answer your question, no there's not a great deal of difference between platies and mollies when it comes to breeding.

    Welcome to the forum!

    First time fish keeper here with a silver molly and a dalmatian molly. I'm certain they are both females so I may be in for an unexpected birth or several.

    From what I've read there's not much difference between the live bearers when it comes to pregnancy :)

    Good luck with the fry! :D
