Some do and some don't. She will get huge and kind of squared off in front when she gets ready to deliver. I've had them deliver 28 to 35 days.

If you have lots of plants real or artificial you will have more survive. Even mom will eat her fry so hiding places will save the babies.

One of my mollies gave birth last week and even with hiding places and a lot of plants, the fry were gone in 2 weeks. I have a 5 gallon ready for the fry. I guess i will just have to wait.
