Mollies Mating

    I saw my two mollies mating yesterday. Does this mean the female is definitely pregnant or is there a chance that she's not?

    She's more than likely already pregnant before you saw them mating as they can store sperm for several months.

    So if I know she's pregnant, do I move her to a seperate tank now so that I won't have to move her when she's really pregnant, and possibly stress her out? Or do I just add hornwort to my current tank she's in? My fish are moving to a bigger tank in less than a week anyway, so what should I do?

    I would leave her where she is & provide some cover with the hornwort so when she's ready to drop her fry she has somewhere quiet to go & the fry will have somewhere to hide.
