    I have 2 balloon mollies purchased from pets at home from an assorted tank I initially thought they were 2 females (1 black and 1 white) but the white one has grown massively compared to the black one and she nips at my other regular mollies when they’re near her and she hangs out around the bottom of the tank, I’ve had her for around a month is she pregnant?

    Hi and welcome to the forum! I’ve never kept balloon molies but; judging from the squarish shape that looks like a very pregnant molly. Like other live bearers the females have a triangular analfin and males have a slender analfin.
