We have noticed the black spot on her belly which also looks a bit boxed-shaped (usually signs of pregnancy). She has been a bit aggressive with the other fish but staying particularly close to one of the other balloon mollies pretty much all the time. She has been staying close to the heater, but not hiding much. Based on that info and these pictures, what do y'all think? Is she pregnant? Or is it a male fish and we just can't tell haha

If she is not pregnant she soon will be, Mollies are like rabbits :wub: , I had more than my share of fry:fish:. They will overrun your tank if you let them. At least that was my experience. Good luck.

Yes she is pregnant, I will suggested not to buy these fish again because they are man made fish and their intestine are squished up in one placed. And also Welcome to the forum :hi:

Both mollies are female. Sometimes it's hard to tell with balloon mollies wether they're pregnant or not.
I myself am not a fan of this kind of molly. The way they're phenotypically bred is not something I encourage.

Thanks for all the responses, guys! We moved her over to an aquarium of her own to help reduce her stress if she is in fact, giving birth soon. Y'all asked for a couple more pics so here is another lot of pics that are closer up and different angles to give y'all a different perspective. Any more thoughts?
