Does my molly look pregnant?

MomOfLiveBearers

Does she look pregnant to you? She is a black molly. I have had her about a month. Yes there is a male molly in the tank as well. Pictures are hard to get

She very well could be.
If there is a male in the tank I would say probably, yes, but in the early stages.
Keep an eye out for this behaviour in the coming weeks.
Staying near the heater.
Eating more.
Secluding herself from he male (also possibly chasing and nipping)
Gravid spot if you can see one, but since she is a black molly you probably won't see one.

How old is she, if you know?

I’m not sure the picture is not very clear. But I think it’s definitely possible she is pregnant. Have you noticed her getting bigger?

She looks a bit bigger than when I brought her home. Her belly looks as though it is dropping a bit but she doesnt appear to be getting wider. Yeah it is really difficult to get a good picture of her my tank has loads of hiding spaces and she is my skittish fish.

I agree just watch her for a few weeks you’ll be able to tell.

I am not positive on how old she is. I have had her a month and I do not think she was quite full grown yet so I am betting she is under a year. She does like hanging near the heater along with my other molly. They are coupled pretty well and spend most of their time together.
