Is she a balloon molly or regular molly? Balloon mollies really only show when they get close... The gravid spot will become darker and wider, and she will become boxy. I assume it is the same as regular mollies.

There is no such thing as a "fat" molly. Either she would be bloated, or pregnant. Considering it is a molly, 99% says pregnant :)

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Platies are such sweethearts. Mollies don't have personalities

When I had balloon mollies, my one male loooooved his female. His ONE female. He wouldn't touch any other female, just her. I got a male to rival him, but he did not care. I had a black female balloon molly I wanted to have bred... So I removed his female, he goes for the other orange one.. I remove her he goes for the leopard one... I remove HER and he refuses the black one.

I had a racist balloon molly xD
