    This molly was bought two or three weeks ago and I chose her because she was a girl. Then after a week or so I looked again and thought I must have been mistaken. I have since read that it is possible for the fish to be a 'late bloomer' or even to change gender. But now she/he looks pregnant or is he just very fat? Has anyone had a similar experience? Thanks

    You can assume that all female livebearers are pregnant, all the time.

    The black molly is a male and a very pretty and healthy looking one. And yes it is well fed, but imho just right.

    I just recently got molly and it seems one is already pregnant. Should I get another tank to keep the fry in? Or can I leave them in a breeding box I heard of someone doing that? If I leave them in the normal tank they'll get eaten right? ( it has angels, tetras, platy and molly) This is her, she is pregnant right? IMG_7762.JPG

    Hate to say it but it looks like you have stocking issues.
    Can you please tell us about your water? Is it soft or hard? Mollies really do best in hard water.
