Recently, a friend of mine gave me a pregnant mollie as I had a small unused tank. Put her in and a few days later she had about a dozen young. A few days later and she had another batch. That was 8 weeks ago and she had another 5 or 6 the other day.
I've been trying to find out how old they have to be to breed? No one seems to know and I've searched the net without any success.
The reason for my question is that two of the first born now seem to be pregnant. Is this possible at this age?
Regards

I thought it was younger than that, but I dunno. If they look pregnant, they probably are!
