One of my mollies seems to be in labor. Her stomach is squared off and her gravid spot is really dark. The only thing I'm concerned about is that she is swimming vertically and instead of fry she seems to be having small green eggs. I tried getting a picture of the eggs but my other fish ate them immediately. Is my molly going to be ok? I don't think this is normal for them. I got a picture of the molly though.

The molly is now back to normal and swimming around my tank. She didn't have any fry though. What was happening with her?

I'm not sure. I've never experienced that before. @Colin_T might know.

Were they eggs or not well developed curled up fry?
They were eggs. It was really weird. She's acting completely normal again and she still has a squared off stomach and a dark colored gravid spot.

So interesting. I'm glad shes ok. If you look at her gravid spot does it look like eggs? Or can you see the fry eyes?
I'm not too sure. It looks like eyes but I'll attach some pictures. Sorry they're really blurry
