Hi. I recently lost my male gold dust molly to disease. The female gave birth this weekend, and I was a day late in getting a breeding net and by the time I woke up Sunday the babies had evidentky become food for the other fish.

My question is - can female mollies have more than one batch of young from a single mating? I know that guppies can supposedly do this, but I don't know if this is true with mollies & other livebearers.

Thanks,
Terry

Yes, it's up to 4 I think.

Thanks. I thought that might be the case. I guess I'll see what happens in about a month. At least I'll be ready with a breeding net the next time!
