The Molly fish is a livebearing tropical fish that can be fairly easy to breed. For many aquarists the biggest problem is not getting them to breed but stopping them from breeding. If left in a tank with other adult fish, the baby mollies will get eaten.

Molly fish, including Balloon Mollies and Sailfin Mollies, are very interesting and easy-to-keep fish for beginners. They are livebearers and the females give birth during their lifetime. The baby Mollies are very cute that makes this species loved by beginners who want to breed and care for baby fish in their first fish tank.

Pregnant Molly Fish and Baby Molly Frys - YouTube
I wanted to create this help guide on different aspects Molly fish owners can take on their fish being pregnant. There are a couple different paths you can choose to go down. I like to give two routes in this situation. You can choose to not care for the babies on their way or you can choose to keep some of the baby fry and watch them grow into adults.This is the video of my Moon tail balloon Molly fish, which was kept just in a Bowl. One day, when I woke up, I saw her chasing other bowl mates aggressively. While looking closer, I saw some little fries (baby fishes) swimming and hiding in gravel! I quickly removed tank mates and let her spawn more fries. Since it is a livebrearer fish, it released live babies instead of eggs though there were a few yellow eggs and a few pre-mature babies too. When she finished, I collected all fries from bowl gravels to a plastic bowl using water sucking through a thin pipe. I feed them crushed fish food and released their mother too with them. Amazingly, the mother didn't eat any baby all the day! There were around 30 babies alive when I shifted. I think she released more than that but many of them were eaten by a Betta and Tetra Widow (Bowl mates) as their stomachs were looking very inflated. Enjoy the video of this joyful occasion. Don't forget to give me comments. :)I woke up one morning to 5 new baby fish. I have no idea who the mother is. I didn't know any of my fish were pregnant. I have them in a breeding container now, and they are just the cutest things. I feed them ground up flake food. I place the food in a plastic baggy, grind it up, then dip one end of a toothpick into the tank water, and then into the powdered food. I then dip that end back into the water right in front of the babies and they gobble it up! All I need to know now is who their mother is? I have 2 white mollies, 1 orange molly, and 1 dalmation molly. I wonder what the babies will look like? I have more fish in this aquarium as well: , , , both male and female, , ... It remains a mystery! But a fun one!Whether you are getting your fry from a pet shop or have a female molly fish that is ready to give birth, it is important to ensure that you have the right setup for your molly fry as soon as they arrive. You may opt to use a nursery tank or a breeder trap, but whatever you choose your fry should have a safe, sheltered space to grow until they reach a reasonable size. By equipping your fry with a safe environment, caring for them with regular feedings and water changes, and acclimating them into your aquarium when they are large enough to handle other fish, you can help ensure the long term safety and health of your new baby fish.
