    Hi, I changed your title to better reflect your question. You're apt to get more responses that why.
    I don't know about live bearers but plenty of members do, I'm sure they'll be able to help.

    Is your aquarium info up to date?

    Hello Shireen. With you having a lot of Molly's per your profile chances are your "fat" molly is pregnant? hmmm? Do I hear the pitter patter of tiny fins? :giggle:

    The Molly is probably pregnant. Even if you don't have males in your tank there were more than likely males in the tank at the petstore and they stored sperm.

    Just make sure the fins are not sticking out like a pinecone or pineapple that is a sign of dropsy. Dropsy will also make a fish bloat up and usually die.
