Deal or no deal???

I would like opinions from anyone who thinks they may be of some help. I'm new to the fish biz, and I have a balloon molly who I think may be pregnant and a dalmatian molly that may be, Here's pics, they aren't the greatest, but maybe you can check them out and tell me what you think??? Thanks.

I would say the balloon molly without a doubt, but thats just looking at those pics, how is she behaving?Is she swimming fast, does her vent seem wider than usual?

Well Nyx my Dalmatian Molly died this afternoon after having her fry at 4am this morning. She was kinda "laying around" all day and I had a feeling she was going to die.

Becky,
The Balloon Molly is mostly separating her self, and I think i can see her gravity spot. The males in the tank with her completely ignore the other females and nudge at her butt with their noses. She'll stay in the corner or swim up and down the height of the tank. And the males mostly follow her around, unless she ninjas away to the corner. And she's looking really flat on the bottom of her belly.

Thanks! They are. I was up til 4 waiting to see if one of them was gonna pop last night, and I had checked on them every hour or so, and browsing the internet to entertain myself. And about 4:20 I decided to go ahead and go to bed because I couldn't hardly stand it anymore, and I go to turn her tank light out and I saw the fry swimming around I was like OMG BABIES!!!! But she was already done having them, so I didn't get to watch :( Maybe next time.

There's about 32 of them that made it. Not sure what I'm gonna do with them yet. Maybe put an ad in the paper, and give them away to anyone that'll take them lol

I got 2 platys and they are both females. The larger is deff pregnant but seriously, its heartbreaking watching momma give birth since she eats them and I had 12 fry in my tank 2 months old and they all died from an ammonia spike

All of mine but 2 died I'm hoping those two still make it. I'm not entirely sure why. I had checked the ammonia and all that, the temp was ok, so who knows. Crossing fingers and toes for the 2 that are left.
