Yip, that's the reality, If you have females and a male together, they are pregnant, don't even doubt the fact!

They can also retain sperm and keep getting pregnant for six months with no male present.

Our LFS will buy them from us. The larger we let them get, the more they pay us for them. Not lots of money, of course, but at least a few bucks in store credit. Last time we got $5 for about a dozen molly fry.

Yeah, we're lucky to have a really good LFS. Its almost an hour drive each way for us but its definitely worth it. I'm usually out there almost every weekend, sometimes twice. They don't give money, just store credit, but it turns out the same anyway since I'm always out there buying something or other.
