We have healthy 2 week old Fry from her now and shes been sluggish the last couple of days but now we are very worried. Perfect levels and everyone else is thriving. Female molly, male molly, some guppies and other friendly tank mates. Please help! Shes so weak I had to just turn off the filter so she doesn't get stuck.. and won't eat ..

She could be recovering from the ordeal.
But I did hear about another story of this happening where the female molly gave birth, wouldn't eat, she was sluggish, and then the next morning she died.
I am NOT saying the same thing is going to happen to your fish.
Try feeding her cooked peas. If she eats she's recovering, if she doesn't touch it than R.I.P...............maybe.
Others may have more opinion.

Sadly she didn't make it much longer after this post. Really devastated because my partner and I loved her and her mate Yang. Hes already moved on to our orange creamsicle molly female.

Really sorry about the molly. Was this her first time producing? Sometimes they just can't have babies.

My molly is pregnant and I'm hoping the same thing won't happen to her.
