Is this a Pregnant molly?

swayamsd

Hey guys I bought some mollies about a week ago. One female seems to be pregnantm I can't really tell if she is pregnant. So pls tell, is she pregnent?
She is not swimming fast. Not very active, sometimes still near articual plants. She is in a 15 gal tank with other 3 mollies, and some barbs. If she is pregnant, when shpuld I expect the fry? Should I put her in a breeding box? If so, when? Pls help me. Thank u

Sorry left the pics of her.
And she is eating good.

She looks clamped, can't really tell if she's even a she because she's clamped. I don't think she's pregnant but if she is, it'll be awhile I think.
Is your tank cycled? Water parameters? Is water hard because mollies like hard water? 15 gal is too small for 4 mollies and I'm sure others will chime in about that.

My water parameters are good. Amoonia 0, nitrite 0, natrates around 15.

Any others replies?

She might be pregnant, but she's not close to giving birth yet.

Your tank is too small for any molly, let alone that many with possible fry. Do you have a larger tank you can move them to? If not, you should rehome them.

Yeah I have a many 33g tanks.
They are stock now.

I'm sorry, I don't understand what you mean. You have multiple 33 gal tanks for them?

I mean I have a couple 33 gallon tank for the fry. But now its stocked so cannot put her in any one now.

Should I add salt? If yes how much? I know a lot of people add salt to their tank to keep their mollies healthy and to boost breeding.

Here is a picture of my Molly when she was pregnant so I'm not sure if yours is but she might be but it might just be early days of it.

So if she is pregnant, goodluck with your fry! Hope this helped.
