    If i see my balloon mollies mating does that mean the female will be pregnant after the mating ritual?

    Yes, usually the females are pregnant from the shop because the keep males and females together in the same tank. Also females an hold sperm for up to 6 months so even without a male she'll continue to get pregnant.

    Ok cause i saw them mating the other day and want to make sure. She does have a small gravid spot but it may be bigger than exPected because i cant see much due to her color.

    She'll get bigger as she gets later into her pregnancy. Here's one of my females that is about half way to birth.[​IMG]
