my molly has not given birth yet but she has the gravid spot and has boxed out, sh has nesting habits, and gets the shakes, yet still no fry. I'm worried something may be wrong. Is there any way to induce labor?

I'm also worried about mine. My molly is super pregnant and hasn't dropped fry for a couple of months. She is enormous. I've actually placed her in a 10gal hospital tank with 1 tsp pure epsom salt per gallon - with a male molly who was pineconing and he is 100% better after a week and a half. She's been in there for 5 days. I was getting worried about her because she was getting a white lump at the end of her tail but the start of her tail fin. She's gotten a lot better but still won't have her babies.

My female gold dust molly is still very big and not giving birth. She's still in the hospital tank with epsom salt. I put floating wisteria in for the fry in case she does have them. I hate to think of this but could the babies die and decay inside of her? I don't understand what's wrong
