Is my molly pregnant

Erin2020

I have this girl molly I just don’t know if she’s pregnant or not
I moved her from the net lastnight to the new tank we set up just for her and now she’s looking different in the belly?

She might be, but she also might not be. She could have just pigged out the last time you fed them. I think she is pregnant to answer the question. Does she have a gravid spot?

Not to sure she was squared off but I put her in her own tank and she lost that look she’s hanging out around the heater and not moving much

Not sure if it’s her spots I’m seeing or if there’s a Gravid spot there

The gravid spot starts out a light brown and the turns black as she nears birth.

I would not be surprised at all if she is pregnant since livebearers are literally always pregnant. Lol. And also based on her behaviour, I am about 85% sure she is pregnant.

This is all she’s been doing all morning swaying back and forth just moving her eyes and her gills and her head every once and a while is she ok?!

Did you cycle the tank? Your profile says you don't know about the nitrogen cycle. Please read up on it. It's very important.

For now, what are your water parameters at? This sounds like an ammonia spike.

It’s the same water I had in the 75 gallon tank I did 75% of that water and then new water and put her in the 10 gal I see her gravid spot more now

She could just be inactive from carrying babies I guess.

She moved around for a while then right back down to her spot
