    hey there, I have 3 female mollies ( I made sure cuz I separated the males to a different tank(about 4 months ago) due to baby making factory was going on) ..and I just found in my female molly tank 4 new babies
    Now I’ve found a new baby once before but only 1 then few days later never saw it again...

    How can this happen????

    Wen they were having babies those few months back i was sure no baby was left in the tank due to me taking everything out (no water in tank) and cleaning the tank...

    I’m just confused ‍♀️

    All livebearers can store sperm from one mating. Basically you bought them pregnant and they will likeky continue to have fry till they run out of stored sperm.

    They will store sperm for around 6 months so 6ou will still have to deal with babies for a while
