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 :)

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
