I recently added 3 lye tail mollies to my aquarium. I believe that two are females and one is male based on the info I have found in the forums. Is it common for male mollies to harrass pregnant females? I am fairly certain my black lye tail is pregnant as the fish has a very full round appearance. Can anyone give me some help. Thanks

yup. your molly is probally prenant. yes, it is common 4 the Male 2 harrass the females. if you notice that the females are injured, move either the F or the M

Something else I've noticed, in addition to male Mollies harassing pregnant females, female Mollies also seem to have a pecking-order, and if the alpha-female is pregnant at the same time as another female and has her fry first, she'll get quite aggressive toward the other female until she has her fry.. weird behavior which I'm still monitoring closely!
