    on march 20th we went and bought two female Cremecicle Lyretail Molly so our male black molly would split his attention. the next morning we woke up to a surprise. one of the new molly's we put in had babies. we know she had at least 10 fry we managed to save 6 and put them in the breeding box. we saw 3 get eaten :( and one was born dead :( she wasnt very big but she did look kind of lumpy so i think that the moving from the pet store to the our tank might have made her have some fry. these are our first fry. :) here are some pics. they were taken from my phone so they are a little blurry. lol

    all six are still alive and growing. we moved them to our 1 and a half gallon tank for now. its easier to feed them that way and it stops from the bigger fish from scaring them by constantly nipping at the outside of the breeding box. lol. we are gonna move them to a bigger tank when they get bigger. they are little over a week old now and four are pretty active but two like to lay at the bottom of the tank but are still alive. so crossing my fingers. :) we think another molly is gonna give birth soon but we cant really tell. the fry we have now were a surprise so we didnt notice a specific behavior before she gave birth because we only had her for less than 12 hours before she had the fry. lol

    just wanted to put an update on the molly fry. all six are still alive. they are a little over a month old now. some have fat bellies but hopefully thats normal. here is a pic of 3 of them.
