My Mollie is in birth progress, she will ahve her babies soon, She has bees in the pace straight doun , tail up position for about 3 hours......how exciting. moved her to a little bowl and set it all up fo the babies to come. These are pictures of her right now. This is how they look and what they do prior to giving birth incase you didn't know what to look for.

HI Karina,
She's a pretty girl.
Thanks for posting your pictures.
I'm sure they'll be a great help to anyone new to mollies.
It might be helpful to others to post them here also as a good reference of a mollie getting ready to give birth:



Good luck and post pics of her babies!

What happened with this little girl? Did she pop yet? I've had Mollies give birth in the past and they never did what she is doing so I'm curious how she is....

I hope all went well with her. We just had our very first molly babies yesterday. We didn't get to see it, just found them in the tank in the morning. Thanks for posting your pics it will be helpful if we go through this again, I didn't know they did that.

You Welcome.

She did fine and had about 24 babies that I counted, Went out and actually missed the delivery but they are all ok so far....however mommy seems a bit tired and well she's acting a bit weired. not moving too much and well I hope she doesn't do what my others have done. 3 Of my Mollies have past away soon after deliveries. I hope this one makes it. Any Ideas as to why they are all dying after they give birth, just wondering if I can do something to stop this.

I'm glad the delivery went well, but it makes me wonder, since your other mollies were positioned like that and didn't make it, if that's the normal position of a mollie giving birth.

Don't know but all of them have done the same thing. I just don;t think that 4 would do the same if it was not natural for them. MMMMM who knows , this is just my observasions and I kind of new to this fish thing. I mean 4 pointed down like this has to be normal or something, Unless they learn form each other and think it looks cool jajajjajajajaj.

thanks

I'm glad all the babies are doing ok. I hope the mother gets better. Our seems fine, the morning when we found the babies in the tank she was a little slower, but has perked up again. Good luck.

Congratulations on the new finbabies! I'd love to see some pictures....

My experience with Mollies delivering was the would swim around like crazy stop for a minute and pop a few out then start swimming all over again until they were through having the babies....I never lost one after giving birth.....I'm wondering if it has anything to do with your girl being in a bowl and not a filtered aquarium...I may be wrong but the photos you posted look like she is in a goldfish bowl.....

my ridiculously huge pregnant molly started having her babies today .. well she had one over 6 hours ago and no more have come .. last time it was one after the other .. I hope she is ok and I suppose there's probably nothing I can do to help ..

It sometimes takes livebearers a few days to a week to give birth to the whole batch, so its best to wait and see.

Maybe you could "soothe" them out of her...

How would I do that? I'm going to give it another few days at least before I do anything drastic, she's still eating and doesn't seem to be in distress, this is her first batch so lol maybe one was premature haha

I have livebearers, too, so would like to know -- lol, are you kidding me with this? How do you "soothe" a fish?

Like "push" them out......I dunno, it is what my sister told me to put.

I'm going back to "Are you kidding me with this?" That will injure or kill the fish. Why would you offer up advice like that when you clearly don't know, by your own admission? What if someone actually took this advice? This is why I'm getting disgusted with aquarium forums. Can't separate the wheat from chaff.

I seperated it. But I think I am watching her for more than 45 minute. How much time it will take?
